VED should be scrapped. It's a pointless beaurocratic exercise.

The concept of fuel tax was that fuel tax would pay for the roads. Bigger, heavier cars cause more wear and tear on the roads and use more fuel. Driving faster and braking harder cause more wear and tear on the roads and uses more fuel. Fuel used will be in proportion to distance driven as will wear and tear on the roads. So a fuel tax is by far the fairest way for the road user to pay his way.

VED is simply an example of politicians' greed and the maintenance of non jobs.
