Reclaiming the term ‘road user’ from the motoring lobby

The correct term is Vehicle Excise Duty. You can’t be taxed for using a public highway the same as you can’t be taxed for using a public park or open space. Typical old Labour trying to put it across that people have some kind of entitlement to something they don’t

Pedestrian Liberation

These banners, which were proudly displayed at a fringe event at the Labour Conference, give a clear impression that ‘Driver=Road User’ and ‘Road User=Driver’. This is totally unacceptable and marginalises all other road users.

This is not an isolated instance, and we need to be challenge it. Following the success of the ipayroadtax.org campaign, I suggest we complain whenever we see the term being used in this way.

Here are the banners in question.
