/ Cyclists polluting the environment
how long before a UK law to follow suit do you think?
This sounds more like a representative who's one of the car industry's tame politicians working on their behalf.
Then again it's America, so anything approaching common sense would be frankly amazing.
The American pornographic industry may not like the idea of breathing heavily being considered a taxable vice too! ;)
I had to read it twice and check the date (not 1st Apr) before posting it to Facebook with a rant because its one of the most ridiculous statements I've ever seen.
Just another take on 'pay your road tax'. The irony being that people riding expensive road bikes tend to be wealthier, therefore pay more in general taxation (and likely also own at least one car) so the argument is blown out of the water.
Also on this logic, can those of us with a lower resting heart rate get a lower income tax rate?
Surely it should be the cheaper bikes that are taxed. A more expensive bike is generally lighter and more efficient leading to a reduced increase in breathing.
Are you sure you're sure about this?
