I am a bit of a car fanatic. It’s my hobby and my money pit. I fully understand that taxes are applied to reduce the amount of imports and ultimately reduce the amount of cars on the road. I agree with the current schemes provided for hybrid and electric cars, it is an interim solution for a greener future. However I still find it hard to understand why I want to buy 1 car and have to pay thousands of euros over and above the value of the car. Should registration tax be on the hefty side if a person is affording multiple cars ? If taxation remains the same for the near future shouldn’t these millions of funds in tax at least be given back in ways for the fanatic to enjoy his hobby? If the government revolutionizes and invests in public transport that makes sense, wouldn’t that be a solution to the excessive demand in cars bought in for daily use?
Thanks for your att.
