    You could have asked for a share of the millions being saved by the new process to be given back to motorists

    Signed #446 :)

    I'd just be grateful if they would fill in a few bloody pot holes with the money, or spend it on the road system in general rather than them giving themselves a pay rise with it :(

    The so called new system (for the UK) has been in use over here for as long as I can remember.
    We pay every 1/4 by direct debit but if you sell your car during this period, you receive a refund from the date that the registration changed hands. Works perfectly.
    On a side note, the amount you pay depends on the weight of the vehicle, the type of fuel you use and in which part of the country you live. Sods law I live in the most expensive area on the west coast.

    I've signed it. Trouble is unless half the population sign it to, it will have little impact on our deaf politicians
