Plans to ban cars older than 10 years from our roads

What do you think?

Banning/restricting cars over 10yrs old.

This is on the .gov website.

"Several EU proposals across the years are dangerous to the classic car movement. One that has been under consideration is to ban the use of cars older than 10 years. Similarly, Edinburgh City Council is considering the banning of cars over 15 years old from the town centre. These, and similar, proposals directly threaten the classic car movement, and encourage the manufacture of new cars, with the attendent environmental issues of sourcing raw materials, manufacturing, distriuting and scrapping the spiralling supply of new vehicles."

You'll be banned from using the roads and only allowed to take the vehicle out having obtained PRIOR consent from your local council.. I.e youd have to plan your route in advance and inform the council for approval who may then decline the whole thing or certain aspects like perhaps if you wish to pass through a city centre etc...

sign the petition here:
Petition to: Reject any proposals to ban or restrict the use of older cars.

If this goes ahead,then there will be a very cheap X1/9 on ebay !

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