Petition Against Massive Road Tax Hike

Discussion in 'Current Affairs, News and Analysis' started by Stonker, Jan 23, 2007.

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. The government's proposal to introduce road pricing will mean you having to purchase a tracking device for your car and paying a monthly bill to use it..

    The tracking device will cost about £200 and in a recent study by the BBC, the lowest monthly bill was £28 for a rural florist and £194 for a delivery driver.
    A non working Mum who used the car to take the kids to school would pay £86 in one month. That's easily over £1000 per yr, if you include shopping. How far is your nearest TESCO?

    On top of this massive increase in tax, you will be tracked.
    Somebody will know where you are at all times.

    They will also know how fast you have been going, so even if you accidentally creep over a speed limit you can expect an additional fine with your monthly bill.

    Its not limited to speeding. They also know where parking restrictions etc are located. And you!

    If you care about our freedoms and stopping the constant bashing of the car driver, please sign the petition on No 10's new website

    THIS IS A GENUINE GOVERNMENT SITE

    Please pass this on to anyone who owns a car/motorcycle. It affects them.

    So far just over 500k have signed up. There are over 30million vehicles and drivers in this country. Just to register 2% of those against this proposal needs 600k signed up and the closing date is 20/02/07.
     
  2. Deleted
     
  3. It's been done before, but the deadline is closing fast and it's an important issue.

    ...Not that a petition of half a million or so names will make any difference to TCB.

    Anyway, BUMP.
