Yup,nice time to bring it in too,when everybody who had a cheap runaround and decided to keep and sell on the expensive car are going to get hit in the wallet where as the people who can afford 01 onwards cars (most decent ones for about 4-10k) dont get affected at all.

Nice

they are putting pressure on people to take car loans out to bail the banks out of it. they consider a car over 10years old as a scrap

with the massive amounts of money the government steal from Irish citizens who buy a new car under the cloak of "vehicle registration tax" they have seen a sharp decrease recently in revenue from this illegal tax. I say illegal because it is totally contrary to the free market system of the EU.

By bringing in this once a year NCT they are trying to make it more difficult to hang on to your car and making it less hassle to just go out and buy a new car thus pumping huge amounts of money in to their coffers.

It is another disgusting revenue making tactic by our government which they can dress up as a safety and environmental cause but in reality they care nothing about motorists safety or the environment. If they did they would fix the roads and provide more public transport.

Sick disgusting pieces of dirt = Irish government.
