Tyre tax.

A new tyre duty based on average milege obtainable with reasonable use
of each tyre.


Need to be a bit careful with that. Otherwise it suddenly becomes
profitable
for wide boys to start offering "low-cost" retreads on the sly and for
others
to have an extra incentive to jack your car up.


No better or worse than siphoning fuel, doing a garage fill and run, or
useing red diesel.
Any scheme will be open to illegal fiddling by the lower orders of society.



And the higher orders never commit any crimes?

Take Jeffery Archer as an example.

Have you read any of the books he wrote? Bring back hanging IMHO.
