    Default Road Tax Rant

    Just thought I'd go on a rant!
    How much car tax do you pay?
    My car tax is up at the end of the month and just got the letter in the post. I always pay for the year and last year was £175. This year it's £200. (2.2dti Vectra)

    What's the government at? It goes up every year but this year by £25. Unbelieveable with the price of fuel going up as well and my wages frozen.

    Roads in terrible condition with potholes and more cars on the roads than years ago so more revenue, so youwould think there would be no need to increase road tax but the government just wants to rob us.

    For some strange reason I get the feeling the goverment want us of the road. From reading many articles etc I think this is the case. You would think the more car owners = more revenue. But they want us to use public transport which still gives them revenue and people jobs.
    Problem is sometimes public transport is more expensive........ I never got the whole small car/small engine = lower road tax. Its us family people that need bigger cars due to kids etc not students and oap's lol. They should only have diff prices for motorbike/car/4x4/lorry etc so everyone in that catagory pays the same. If you choose to have the larger engine your choice you use more petrol/diesel than those who choose the 1 litre eco friendly go kart lol.
    My rant over haha
    (just dont get me started on price of petrol)

    but it's not 'Road Tax',... it's 'Vehicle Excise Duty' - so they can spend money on immigrants and expenses

    I could fully understand the price going up if it was to cover the cost of fixing all the ****ed roads in the country and I'd be more than happy to pay for that so I had smooth tarmac everywhere to drive on, but no it doesn't get spent on that. Trunk roads only isn't it?
