I’ve taken a bit of stick on a variety of cycling forums – including comments on stories on this site – for appearing to suggest that only those cyclists who also own cars (and hence pay Vehicle Excise Duty) are covered by the iPayRoadTax.com campaign. I apologise if this has been the impression given.
The site is not about taking sides or making sure only one sub-set of cyclists can assert their “rights” on the road. iPayRoadTax.com highlights that ‘road tax’ doesn’t exist; motorists do not pay into a ‘road fund’. As road tax doesn’t exist, those cyclists who do not pay VED are not disadvantaged by the iPayRoadTax.com concept.
iPayRoadTax.com is a useful, shorthand way of expressing a number of interlocking concepts, it’s not a campaign for “motoring cyclists”.
