    I can see speeding cases coming to court where the only evidence is phone records....
    I keep pushing forwards but they keep pushing me backwards. So I have new rules. 1. Don't feed the trolls you know they have no souls. 2. Don't respond to them they'll only post back back again. 3. Don't be their friend they'll only knife you in the back. I have new rules I count them.

    Initially they'll just use the mileage on the MOT to send you the tax bill for the year. Now you know why they've put the MOT records online so it's already available for their tax reporting.

    https://www.gov.uk/check-mot-history

    Eventually all cars not 'classic' will be lease owned by the manufacturer and you'll just pay a weekly/monthly cost to use it. Mileage will be tracked as part of the lease and fed to the government so the tax is included in the regular charges.

    Though that's too simple for the government, so they'll spend billions upgrading all the roads to 'smart' ones so they can track number plates and charge toll fees.
    Maybe tomorrow, I'll want to settle down. Until tomorrow, I'll just keep moving on.

    I wonder how easy it will be to disconnect or otherwise circumvent.

    I like that idea. My campervan has a broken odometer so you can only read the first two digits unless it's hot (the hotter the van gets, the more numbers show up). Despite being 18 years old, the MoT says it's done 14 miles.

    Happy days if this is how it'll work

    What happens to those who use their car abroad? Pay twice? Stupid idea.

    I keep pushing forwards but they keep pushing me backwards. So I have new rules. 1. Don't feed the trolls you know they have no souls. 2. Don't respond to them they'll only post back back again. 3. Don't be their friend they'll only knife you in the back. I have new rules I count them.
