Nothing wrong with older cars if maintained properly, I would suggest possibly making the MOT stricter to abolish the bangers.

But a total ban is crazy & not that good for the environment.

Why don't these stupid bs just tell us that we the common people can't have cars.

What comes next. 5 years. 2 years.
VIPs & MPs only.

I've just sent a link to Oily,and he's signed it.

He has also pointed out that there are other deserving petitions on there too,including the one that regards tax exempt vehicles.Originally any car over 25 years old would be tax exempt,but this changed to any car registered before 1973.Another rip off from the wonderful government.

My Exxy would be tax exempt next year if the 25 year rule was still current.....

I'd rather push my Alfa than drive a BMW....

They won't take any notice but sign away - typical of this 'people's government'

Don't they do something like this in Japan?

Brilliant idea. I think everybody should be given the opportunity to drive a new car.
Well done the government.
