Anybody see the BBC had a section on 'the Myth of Road Tax'?

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/magazine-23694438

At least a slow news day is good for something. Next on the list should be ASLs or does anyone else have a preference for a worthy cycling related news feed.

Btw - love the Churchill quote. A t-shirt with that and a huge slogan on a cycling jersey reading "YOU PAY VEHICLE EXCISE DUTY - it's a tax on emissions dummy" might be a winner.

Most thought it was a tax to pay for potholes

Now it all makes sense... "road tax" is being used to create potholes in a deliberate attempt to discourage cyclists.

I'd be quite happy for more of the VED going to road upkeep.

On some days I think the poor road surfaces are more of an issue than the bad drivers...

Edinburgh is awful for its poor road surfaces. Potholes that could swallow bike and rider whole and thats even on some major routes.
