To: Denis Naughton, Minister for Clean Air & Environment
Tax Diesel Soot Polluters
Put high tax on diesel cars, not pre-2008 petrol car owners.
Why is this important?
Diesel Cars emit soot and NOx toxic fumes and are polluting our clean air and are bad for peoples' health.
70% of new cars purchased in Ireland are diesel - insane - due to the crazy Motor Tax Law that penalises older pre-2008 petrol cars but promotes purchase of new diesel cars.
Paris to ban diesel cars from July 2017 ... many other cities to follow.
Irish Motor Tax Law is regressive, 2-Tier and bad for your health.
This Irish law puts high tax on pre-2008 cars and low tax on those who can afford new cars. It is socially divisive and totally unacceptable.
