    I think it’s more like different tolls have different sensitivity, that’s why I listed the ones I’ve tested. I can’t remember what car it happened with or what toll exactly but I remember driving...

    If they’re increasing existing motor tax rates I’d say they will all increase. Just like they did the last time. I think they’re mostly talking about a new scheme in 2020, though.

    I'm looking forward to trying one out in the US at some stage. What I think is particularly promising is that they're not messing with the V8. Ok it's a bit lazy and doesn't have the sharpness of the...

    I didn’t read the Indo version of this but as proposed it will be like in 2008 where motor tax will be forward looking (July 2020 onwards) and VRT changes will apply to all cars so you can’t import...
