Subject: 30year rolling exemption


Have you seen the petition on the Government website, which has just appeared, whereby if they get 100,000 signatures by next year. the subject of extending the rolling 25year exemption to 30 years for classic cars, will be debated in parliament?

Will do, even getting it 'rolling' again would be a result, it's been fixed at 1972 since the late nineties I think. Just got my 130 bill for my 33 year old car!

I have attempted this but have received no e-mail reply to complete the process and it's been over 24 hours since submission.
Neither is it sitting in my Junk/Spam Inbox.
Has anybody else experienced the same?
The same thing happened with the other e-petition I wanted to sign up to.

Richard,
I've had no problem with this or other petitions, not your spam settings?

Brian.

I've checked and any spam is sent directly to my Junk Folder for me to deal with as I see fit (normal setting), but none has arrived.
This non-response is very odd because I've done these e-petitions before and not had this happen.
I attempted it again but couldn't, as their system recognised my e-mail address as having been used for the e-petition.
So it would appear that the response is now being blocked, or not being sent.
Hmm!  :-\

Get rid of that Mac and get a proper PC then you'll just have the normal problems we all have and not the weird ones where you're on your own ! :D

Yeap - I have signed it too.

Dreaming now of free road tax for 3 x Betas, 1 x Delta and 1 x Gamma, with another Beta and another Gamma following suit in the next two years..... dream on though I fear :(

Steve.
I used another Mobile Me alias and it worked, so I can only presume it was their system and nothing to do with me.
Well, that's my story and I'm sticking to it!

7373 signatures so far. is there a 'time limit' as such i wonder?also it would not suprise me in the least if instead of a 'chronological'  exemption extension being granted to newer vehicles some sort of a review of the existing  exemption may take place resulting in a 'reduced rate' road fund license fee being demanded by the authorities[at least dick turpin had the decency to wear a mask as is sometimes said]

I just don't trust government. In other EU countries, and I'm thinking of Denmark and Sweden, classic car usage is already restricted while in Germany, cars without current co2stickers are banned from city centres. This exists already as a proposal in the UK. As I understand it commercial vehicles over five years old are also to be banned from operating in the London area as from Jan 1st. As with all the talk about raising our motorway speed limit to 80 mph, this is nothing special but at the same time limits are being reduced dramatically on rural roads, we can expect EU wide law concerning use of our cars and it might be in our interest to pay the RFL and retain freedom. just a thought. Sooner we leave the EU the better IMHO

Richard, Peter may be referring to the Low Emission Zone which covers most of Greater London every day of the year and there are tighter regulations from January next year.

the 'euro 4' spec seems to be the thing to have.i will look in the handbook for details.i assume this rule only applies to 'type approved vehicles' and not to vehicles made before type approval came into being.best regards richard
