this whole 'road tax' thing is boring me to tears, the way I see it most car drivers who have the attitude that they are the only ones that are legitimately allowed on the road wont listen to any form of reason, be it the ved 1937 argument, or my car is faster/bigger/more expensive than your bike so get out of the way attitude that some have. its got nothing to do with transport choice its all about invading someone else s perceived space, the same car drivers that give us crap about being on the road will give another car/lorry/bus/caravan/alien mothership the same crap if they are being help up. people just don't like to be delayed whether its by 10 seconds by a cyclist or 10 miles sat behind a hgv on an a road at 40 mph and lets be honest, who hasn't complained about them?
other than me of course as I never get help up, my high horse rides over everything
the long and short of it (getting to the point) this argument will never go away as the people its aimed at just aren't interesting in arguing it.
