Now answer the question I asked; Do cyclists pay any SPECIFIC

That's a different question to the last one. Yes, I can confirm
that
the
government does not demand specific taxes from people that
choose to
use
a
bicycle. There is no need for jealousy - just get a bike and ride
it.

Nobody is jealous of cyclists. Read the research;

The issue is about tax, you idiot. There is no unfairness.

Who mentioned unfairness? Nobody is suggesting that cyclists being
sponging freeloaders isn't fair. Just that cyclists should pay their
way
and stop being sponging freeloaders.


How can cyclists be spongers when they do not *have* to pay tax!?

Because they use the roads and should pay to do so.

If your car was exempt from tax, would you insist that you pay
something
to the DVLA? and if not, could we call you a sponger?

If I used one of the minority of Road Tax exempt vehicles I would still
pay all the other taxes including fuel duty.


But bicycles don't use any fuel...obviously. Bicycles are legally
allowed on roads, so I don't understand exactly what you keep carping on
about.


That's because cyclists aren't too bright. If cyclists are allowed to
use their 'vehicles' on the roads they should pay to do so and not be
sponging freeloaders.

Why do you keep whingeing if they are *legally* allowed on the
roads....jealous because they are fuel free?

Don't be silly, no normal person is jealous of cyclists. They should pay
their way.


How?


By paying an annual fee. We could call it 'Road Tax'. It could cover
the cost of compulsory registration plates for cyclists and ensure they
were insured and properly regulated.

Then, if cyclists demand special features on roads, the tax could be
increased to cover the costs and stop them mumping on others..

They are abiding by the tax laws. *Why* are you having a go at cyclists?

It's the government that you should be moaning about.

Both gentleman are pretty certain to take that as a compliment.

Did you mean it as an insult?

Lesson Number 1:
Mr Pounder knows when to cut and run when his arse is being kicked around.
Lesson Number 2:
Nobody has ever beaten Dave on a discussion regarding road lice/cyclists.
Lesson Number 3:
There is no lesson number 3:

Not sure where you get your 'jealous' thesis from - Handyman Research? :-)


Handyman complains that there is no specific tax to use a bicycle on public
roads so has this idea that people taking this choice have joined some sort
of priviledged club that he is excluded from.
