Making everyone take a test, need a licence and pay road tax would be a brilliant way to get people out on their bikes realspeed....
We should all write to our MP's, and while we're at it we could mention about the amount of walkers, runners, horse riders, and climbers taking up space in the country. We could tax them as well and use the money to tarmac the tracks and bridleways.
It's quite one thing to tax people who are out keeping fit and not placing a burden on the NHS or polluting their environment, but the worst thing is; We are begging the government to levy taxes on everything and that's just what they want....
Why does everything have to come with a cost? You'll have to be licenced and pay to walk on the pavement soon, or walk on the beach, and even the air that we breathe......Flipping madness!
