Drivers are hit with far more than their fair share of tax. A report by the TaxPayers Alliance in January 2011 (pdf) found drivers pay £18 billion a year more than they should!
There are so many taxes imposed upon drivers that it is easy to overlook some of them. Some are more obvious than others. Some are so much in the background it's easy to forget they exist — did your insurance company tell you how much tax you paid on your last premium?


And remember, all these are on top of income tax and the plethora of other stealth taxes everyone has to pay.

Why are there so many different taxes? It's easy — the government want to make it a hard as possible for people to work out just how much total tax they pay each year. There'd be riots in the streets if people were aware of the truth.
