Time to leg it.
Thats not actually 4x4's though - its is anything with a seriously thirsty engine. Its the media that have latched onto saying that this is an 4x4 tax, presumably as that is more emotive (whichever side of the fence you are on) and therefore sells papers!

Seriously thirsty? Red Ken now considers anything over 2 litres to be a gas guzzler - that means most typical people carriers and family saloons!!!

Holland has tax with the name of "SLURP TAX" al new 4x4 have to pay extra and the want to ban 4x4 in the citty...... and they succeed.
My´n btw is a 5.2 liter and with this politic I will continue to burn as much I can. I`m sick of This politic.
They want to get much tax as possible but when I want to drive a cleaner fuel they punish me with extra tax.
But I read that Its also in England
Sorry, its politic but need to steam off. This is my last reply on this subject.

Just to P you all off I just had my immisions test ( $19.00) and renewed my tax for my 5.7lt. 4x4 for the small exhorbitant fee of $20.04. Tax in Arizona is based on the age/value of the vehicle and is classed as personal property tax so it deductable against your income tax.

Still quite high. Paid $2.93 per US gal. yesterday. That would be $3.66 per Imp. gal. don't get fooled by the pound /dollar exchange rate $2.93 is about the same as I pay for a lb. of sirlion steak from Safeways so it is quite expensive to us.

I reckon they could a make real difference in more ways than one if they banned lazy parents from driving their kids to school if they live within a mile of the school .
seems to me thats where most of the congestion comes from , even in our little village .
