Budget changes to Vehicle Excise Duty

The old argument that as cyclists don't pay "road tax" they don't belong on the roads has been dealt a savage blow.

One of the budget changes is to decrease the Vehicle Excise Duty on Band A petrol-driven cars (emitting up to 100 grammes/kilometre of carbon dioxide) to zero.

Thus if you think Vehicle Excise Duty is road tax, small cars join cycles in not paying for roads.
