THE LAST STRAW?
Surely the present-day motorist is penalised enough already with excessive taxes without making it compulsory to fit, suppressors to his engine at his own expense ?
After all, the Government should be able to find the money to supply the accessories from the remainder of the unused road-fund tax of last year, considering that less than 10 per cent, of the total collected was used for the repair and maintenance of our roads.
I consider petrol and oil taxes, road tax and purchase tax a big enough price to pay for the” pleasure ” of owning a vehicle without being forced to buy accessories to satisfy a minority of the population. By all means let us fit the suppressors, but only if supplied by the Government and not by us. I am, Yours, etc., Colchester. JOIN M. FLOUNDERS.
