Labour MP Brian Donohoe is calling for tax discs to be scrapped suggesting that paper discs affixed to the windscreen is old fashioned and should be unnecessary in the 21st century, whilst pointing out that the cost of creating the discs is £5 million a year and £14 million to send out suggesting that there must be other ways of displaying whether road tax has been paid including Automatic Number Plate Recognition cameras. However, the police don’t agree saying that tax discs are vital for crime detection. Deputy Chief Constable, Adam Briggs said ‘The ability to do a visual check helps officers target criminals in a cost effective way.’ He also said ‘The fact it has to be displayed acts as a deterrent to those tempted not to buy one.’ Following this the DVLA said it had no plans to scrap tax discs, and argued most of the admin costs would remain even if they were abolished. Hmmm, watch this space. What do you think about the continued use of tax discs? By Graham Hill
