Officials have considered a new “two-tier” road tax system as part of a Government review of transport funding, it emerged yesterday.
The scheme would see drivers who only drive locally and stay off major roads paying a lower rate of Vehicle Excise Duty than those who use motorways.
That means you\’ve got to track everyone who does use the motorways. At some cost you understand.
There\’s a much easier way. Eliminate VED and whack the money onto fuel duty.
