Sigh.

There is a variety of cars in the showrooms and the car fleet set by a
majority of buyers/owners/users has nothing to with an individual's
choice.

Of course it does.


So you're telling us that you are influenced by the choice of Jones next
door. Oh well.


Doh! The choice made is largely influenced by price, that is exactly why
only 1% of cars are electric.


The mere mention of electric has made you obsessed. I suggested electric
was *an* option, not *the only* option.

But you still confuse the make up of the fleet (cars that have been bought)
with the choice an individual can buy.

Oh look! You conveniently missed the question;

Lets just answer the question. That will make a pleasant change. I'll
give you some clues this time;


Here is my answer again. A second car would have an effective negative tax
rate. Just because you are given answers you don't like does not mean they
are not answers.

It's a very good answer to a question you appear to have made up yourself.

Now answer the question I asked; Do cyclists pay any SPECIFIC EXTRA
taxes to use their push bikes on the road?

You've forgotten the original question.

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;

Years of government efforts to promote cycling have had almost no impact
on a sceptical population who largely view bikes as either children's
toys or the preserve of Lycra-clad hobbyists, a university study has found.

"Many people barely recognise the bicycle as a legitimate mode of
transport; it is either a toy for children or a vehicle fit only for the
poor and/or strange," Dave Horton, of Lancaster University, wrote in an
interim assessment of the Understanding Walking and Cycling study.

"For them, cycling is a bit embarrassing, they fail to see its purpose,
and have no interest in integrating it into their lives, certainly on a
regular basis."

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

How glad I am to be not "many people"
I find the bicycle is a very enjoyable convenient economical viable means
of transport for many things.

Psycholists SOP. When losing an argument, always revert to insults.

Why do people insult others?

Insults can also be used as a form of control, whether it is to control
another person, to control a conversation. Insulting outbursts are often
used by people who are angry that their lives are out of control in other
ways.

Why do you insist on calling yourself a ****wit? If you're looking to start
an argument, you'll have to change the subject.

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.
