Angry Banning or restriction of cars over 10 years old

Don't know if this has been posted on here yet, but just in case it aint, i'll do it

This is a petition to reject any proposals to restrict the use of cars over 10 years old in the UK and over 15 years old in parts of Scotland.

Being a classic scooby owner this would affect me aswell as other classic owners out there.

Not only scoobies but what about all the other classic cars out there. Cmon guys and gals do the right thing.............sign the petition.


Petition to: Reject any proposals to ban or restrict the use of older cars.

Signed!

I tell you, nothing this government does surprises me anymore. Yet again penalising the less well off as opposed to those idiots driving huge SUV's and big old luxury cars. Where are most families gonna find the money for brand new cars? It'll also not be worth buying anything over 5 years old, so used prices will shoot through the roof owing to supply/demand and price ordinary folks out. Not to mention my STi will be just over 10 years when it hits UK shores in a year and a half.
This government must be trying to force people abroad. Many can't afford to buy a house at the moment, and now they wanna stop you buying a car. I'm gonna have to seriously reconsider my return to the UK if they continue to think up such absurd legislation.

it'll never happen.

the reasoning behind it is to save polution, but how can scrapping perfectly good cars by the millions (we are talking about millions of cars here) just to put new ones on make any sort of sence in saving pollution?

hair brain scheme cooked up by someone who hasn't thought about realities, yes it may save C02 emmisions over time, but then more will be produced making them.

Hope your right m8, but the way this labour government have been behaving over the last few years i wouldn't put nothing past them. As you already know, slamming motorists seems to be the in thing at the moment.......

Petition signed.

I've never heard so much crap in my life. You get all these illegal imigrants in our country, everything is handed out to them, but us uk residients are kicked in the teeth time and time again and basically being forced out our own country.

I'll not give my sccoby up, let the ba****ds try and catch me first.

Scotty.
