    Only 365 days until they can tell you about 2017.

    The number of vehicles is irelevant. There can only be about 30,000 vehicles on the road at any one time. That’s about how many licenced drivers we have. At a guess. We should be able to buy any amount of vehicles we want. They can only be on the road with a driver. Why not get the tax on as many additional vehicles people want?

    21 square miles, more accidents.

    At a rough guess only need to be about 10 GP cars at the most.
    The rest should be sold off.

    Those in government who are driving them are making sufficient salaries to run their own vehicles and should be using them to get to work like everyone else.

    Most of these vehicles are parked or being used to carry out non-government related errands. As it is the taxpayer is supporting a far to bloated civil service and government for the size of the island.

    Motorcycles are understated if based on registered as I see so many with out of date licences. Why no enforcement? If the Gov want more revenue and stop violations of the law, position cadets at stop lights and ticket all those bikes who race to the front, over the white line. May have some impact on future compliance with the law.
