The original principle behind VED was actually for the vehicle being licensed to contribute to repairing the roads it would be damaging through its use (as well as building new infrastructure)...
Quite a 'radical' idea now though isn't it???
This is one of the reasons why motorbikes traditionally paid less tax than a car.
So to say they should be the same isn't really very fair.
On that basis, pedal cycles should be taxed also, they use the roads, and the person pedalling will emit more CO2 (by breathing more deeply through exertion), than they would by walking.
Where do we stop?
