    Well, no, it's based on my experience of having watched buses.
    9 out of 10 of the ones I see have either got no passengers on or less than 5. These could be carried by a car.

    So the car isn't the quickest form of transport for getting to work in a lot of cases then? Therefore I would suggest it isn't necessarily an economic benefit. That's all I was trying to get across!<hr height="1" noshade id="quote"></blockquote id="quote"></font id="quote">

    They didn't re-badge it. They removed road tax and replaced it with another tax that is not earmarked for road expenditure. Its just another tax, and it no more gives the motorist extra rights than paying VAT or duty on alcohol. <hr height="1" noshade id="quote"></blockquote id="quote"></font id="quote">
    Wrong. Paying road tax gives the motorist the right to use the road*, in the same way that paying the duty or VAT on alcohol gives you the right to drink that alcohol. The only reason it's not earmarked for road expenditure is so that they can siphon it off for other things they want to use it for, like buses, or a load of dulux for some shared space, or the millennium dome, or paying half a million quid to design a logo for the olympics - it's often the case that petrol tax alone covers the cost of road maintenance.

    VED (what you call "road tax") is what you pay for the pleasure of owning a car. Its payment does not give you the right to drive on the road.

    I see you still ignoring the cost of vehicles on the health, social, police and justice systems.

    I don't believe that the majority of journeys are faster by car than other transport, especially those in urban areas. Indeed in your previous post you've pointed out the situations when trains and walking would be faster.

    In a lot of rural cases it is the only feasible method, but if public tranpsort were subsidised to the same extent as private motor vehicle transport I think public transport would be a more viable option.

    No. The Road Fund was a mechanism for spending the licence fee ("Road Tax") on roads. The roads alresdy existed, of course, and they were paid for through general taxation but the Road Fund was intended to go towards the cost of making them better able to cope with the pressures of motor traffic. It was even proposed that eventually entirely new roads could be built that only licence-payers could use.
    When the fund was abolished the licence fee went straight to the treasury and wasn't earmarked for anything at all. It's not a rebadging, it's a complete change in the way the money is managed.

    It would probably be more accurate, but I was thinking of simply taking an impartial view to the whole thing. I know from your previous posts that you dislike buses and have mentioned several times how they always appear empty to you. It could be argued that the only buses that stick in your mind are the ones that are empty, and that therefore your results are biased against those which are carrying passengers. I would guess there are other variables to consider to, such as location, time of day etc.

    I'm not a big fan of buses, but I don't harbour the same dislike you do, so I suspect my view isn't as biased as yours. Maybe you just see them through sh*t-tinted glasses?

    Well no, in rural areas it will never be as viable as cars. There will always be a place for private motor vehicle transport. I'm not sure what the point of this is as I don't believe I ever suggested otherwise.

    That's completely correct. It's not spent in any one area, and it certainly doesn't buy anything more than temporary permission to use the roads.
    It's like buying a travel card, you can use the tubes but not claim that you've bought them, paid for them or own them.

    Legal within certain constraints. Its hard to describe a permission that can be so readily removed as a 'right'.

    The problem is that we seem to have rather forgotten, as a society, that it isn't a right. Hence people regularly do things that should cause this privilege to be removed (speeding and other forms of dangerous driving) and get away with it. I suppose its a self sustaining thing; the more people get away with breaking these rules, the more driving (once you've paid VED) is viewed as a 'right'.

    However you have told us that you commute (in an unsustainable fashion) from a rural area to an edge of town business park. If you think that this is a fair way to assess the occupancy levels of busses then you are significantly thicker than you appear.

    You also appear to believe that until the advent of the car the A1 petered out every few miles or so. Laughable. Ignorant.
