No they don't, they're are not paying to use the roads, the only road that motorists pay to use are toll roads or congestion zones, none of which apply to A band motor vehicles or electric.

“Vehicle Excise Duty (VED) (also known as "vehicle tax", "car tax" or "road tax", and formerly as a "tax disc") is a tax that is levied as an excise duty and which must be paid for most types of vehicles which are to be used (or parked) on public roads in the United Kingdom.”

...but it goes to central funds - it is not a Road Fund and hasn't been for decades



Regardless where it goes, if you don't pay you are breaking the law.

I don't think VED is a law either is it? Surely that would be an act?

Breaking the law can put you in jail. Not paying VED won't. But lets not let facts get in the way, this is the NewburyToday forum after all.

Not paying the fine will ultimately land you in gaol.

I don't believe that is true.

Non payment of criminal fines or council tax are the only bills which you can be imprisoned for as far as I can tell. Happy to be corrected but I can't find anything to suggest otherwise. Non payment of VED incurs a charge not a fine.

Being found to have a motor vehicle on the road without VED can mean:

Out of Court Settlement (OCS) letter issued.

OCS set at £30 plus one and a half times the outstanding vehicle tax rate.

If settlement is not paid, as a criminal offence the case may be pursued via the Magistrates Court. Penalty is the greater of £1,000 or five times the amount of tax chargeable.

Vehicle may be clamped.

I believe not setting Magistrates' court fines could then lead to prison, even if unlikely.

The offence of not paying a fine is different and seperate though, even if it is related.

In my statement I said ‘ultimately’ for that reason.

Well there's a surprise!!
Coiuncil agree tax rise by maximum permissible amount without public consultation!
Around twice the rate of inflation I believe?............AGAIN!! rolleyes.gif


"council leader Lynne Doherty, argued that residents would understand the necessity of the council tax rise,"
" I’m confident this increase will be acceptable to the majority.”
Then...... “As a Conservative, I do not welcome a rise in council tax and I believe low taxes are the key to a strong economy."

What don't you understand? Their pensions won't pay themselves you know. Then there's expenses, new carpeting, air conditioning, it's hard work being in local government. 😂. Oh, yes, vanity projects, gotta fund those as well.

I take it you still want your bins emptied though? You may not be getting much else for your money just now as you shouldn't even be driving and using the roads unless you're an essential worker but all the same these are unusual times. The problem is that some people are now expecting everything to be free and their salaries to be paid while they sit at home playing Call of Duty and using this as an opportunity for an extended duvet day.

Notice a lot of people who work in the "cash in hand" corner of society are screaming about not getting a handout from HMG. and think they are entitled to anything going. Talking about "duvet days" all those workers who used to fall out of bed into their car and drive to work have now decided that going for a walk is good and completely safe. angry.gif

The key words in the response to your post were "some people" so please don't get upset or take it to heart as a personal dig against yourself. My parents are both in their 70s and this is probably the first time in their lives (post university) that neither of them has had any paid work to carry out, such is the absolutely exceptional work ethic of the generation that was born prior to 1950.
