The government has declared its budget for 2008. Among the changes that will affect motorists are:
- Increased fuel tax (postponed until October)
- Funding for new technology to manage road pricing
- Higher first year tax on the most polluting cars
- Planned changes to vehicle tax from April 2009 to encourage manufacturers to build less polluting cars
Will the 2008 budget have an effect on what car you drive or how much you drive? What’s your reaction to the budget?
