PostSubject: 30 Year Free Road Tax Petition   Sun Feb 19, 2012 8:43 pm

I have just had a look at the Governments online
petition for the restoration of the 30 year free road tax rule for
classics, and there are currently 17,000 signatures.



It requires 100,000, so a bit of work to be done! If it is passed into
law it will mean that the current fixed date of January 1973 or before
for free road tax will be restored to a rolling 30 year date, so more of
our cars will become road tax free.



See link below to sign if you wish.

I suspect the government have more pressing matters at present. Even were they to debate it, they may not consider it politic in the current climate to make any further concession to what a sizeable (and ill-informed) part of the electorate probably sees as a well off and environmentally destructive minority.

Who knows they just stopped MOT's on pre 60's cars. Anything is possible.

Next thing you know they will be standing at the pumps and paying for our fuel too! Wink

A few old classic car clubs are a bit wary of this.

With the gumit trying to save money, or take more off us, too much publicity on this could make the bench warmers in westminister think how much road tax they are losing.
