CITY VIEWS: ARE MOTORISTS UNFAIRLY TAXED BY THE CURRENT “GREEN” TAXATION SYSTEM?

IAN SEYMOUR | HERBERT SMITH
“I don't have a lot of sympathy with motorists because it is so bad for the environment, so I cycle which is also more efficient and quicker. The taxes aren’t a bad thing.”

DOUG KINGTON | CHARLES TYRWHITT
“Green taxes are unfair because you need to know where the money is going. Unfortunately you have to deal with tax rises for any means of transport.”

ROB FALKNER | REED SMITH LLP
“I definitely agree with the principle of paying green tax as a motorist, but I don't think drivers should have to pay any less or more than is appropriate for their particular vehicle.”
