Scrap VED on private cars. Introduce a basic third-party injury insurance cost based on car/risk profile.

Investigate a simil;ar approach to commercial vehicles (not so clear as I write this)

Why is this idea important?

Carbon reduction is best acheived through fuel duty. Current road tax does not relate directly to road usage nor to fuel usage.

If a car is stolen or uninsured due to drink drive etc, a poor victime can be left without adequate compensation. A government insurance of last resort for personal injury would help.
