I wouldn't mind seeing the end of tax discs (& NCT) on the windshield, 3 is too many. Also it'd be great to be able to claim back unused tax when selling.

Won't be long before this Government follows suit. You seen it here first. :(

Drivers warned to brush up on new tax disc rules or face a £1,000 fine | Mail Online
I don't see the problem, If Im selling I no longer have to wait until the tax is up/nearly up to avoid giving the buyer free money. I can get the money back.

Id much rather they got rid of the tax disk and instead of having check points that waste garda resources (which could be used more effectively such as doing actual police work like arresting criminals), equip the go safe vans with ANPR (if not already equipped).
Car shows up on the anpr as having no tax, a fine gets issued. If the fine isn't paid, then its a mandatory court appearance.
Likewise with nct and insurance, unless they have 3rd party extension for insurance.

Would be a much better use of resources and the loss making venture for revenue that is go safe, could actually make the state money.


Less than a third of the costs of operating the mobile cameras is covered by fines. May as well use it in such a way that it provides the best return for the taxpayer

Mick, just because you're paranoid doesn't mean they're not out to get you!
