Other people also attacked the call for road tax payments. They said: “A PS100 Halfords Cyclist pays the exact same amount in ‘roadtax’ as someone who drives a PS30,000 Nissan Leaf, or a PS80,000 Tesla.”
The tweet was not without controversy. One person asked: Can we also have speed limits on vehicles?
They exist on scooters and electric bikes, so there’s no question that the technology is not up to the job.
This is a response to many who have asked cyclists for insurance or a tax after Jeremy Vine’s video.
