Full Version: Remember the Poll Tax? Why don't we just stop paying...

I am fed up with virtually unavoidable parking tickets, camera fines etc.

It's time for a campaign of civil disobedience. When the Poll tax was introduced, people in their thousands defaulted, because they could not or would not pay. The system broke down under the numbers involved, and this is what I think needs emulating today.

The motorist is being taken for a ride. It's not about safety, it's not about investment for the future, it is, quite simply, extortion.

Yes, lets use the legal system when forced to, but remember; they cannot sue everyone.

Does anyone out there agree?

They couldn't ban you for not paying.
