The reality is that, while the authorities can work on the basis that driving isn't a right, it's a privilege and even more than that, it is actually fun, then of course they can exploit, cheat, tax, oppress and incarcerate drivers with impunity and so they do. One only need explore the various topic labels at the top of this page to see the evidence of it and of course see the evidence amassed at www.driversunion.co if there is any doubt about the official corruption against drivers.
Here in this open letter to to Suzette Davenport, (head of road policing) and the NPCC,
we have put the whole corrupt case. I am glad to say that the NPCC are now treating this evidence very seriously.
But one only needs to look at the work of Fair Fuel UK
on the extraordinary fuel duty imposed on drivers to gather that they are not seen as essential infrastructure and essential to the community who must be given priority and consideration for the service they are providing.
Then we have a whole corrupt anti driver profiteer's road safety industry, who even now are ranting about, already very low road casualty figures, about to rise. See RoSPA at it here.
Predicted rise in road deaths https://t.co/lDPbxKdiqK we simply can't be complacent! @Road_Safety_GB @RoadSafetyWales RoSPA lower dd limit— RoSPA Road Safety (@roadsafety) February 5, 2016
And predictably of course the green based anti drivers of 20s Plenty.
@roadsafety @Road_Safety_GB @RoadSafetyWales Actually we have been and are complacent. That why deaths have been flatlining since 2011.— Rod King (@20splentyforus) February 5, 2016
@20splentyforus @roadsafety @Road_Safety_GB @RoadSafetyWales The flatline low is costing so much we're now killing more people off the roads— Driver Hatred (@Driver_Hatred) February 5, 2016
The insatiable Road Safety Industry, not only costly from its tax break financial support, but from the massive costs of interference and false road safety policy, is actually killing more people off the road from the pure economics of it all. We must look at road safety on a cost benefit basis and at the moment road safety is killing more people than it saves. See some examples Here & Here & Here & Here
Pretending to be benign, cost-less and of high principle, most if not all of road safety policy is now based on a mix of profit, green anti driver ideology, and vested interests. See here & Here and is so costly, that road safety is not cost effective and is now totally counter productive. ( Here they are exploiting a mere 49 more fatals after a low year and after 300 billion driver miles too. )
Not only does this result in more death when viewed from outside the road safety bubble, but an aggressive and totally unfair treatment of all UK's drivers. Drivers' Union have now been able to establish anti driver officials within police, councils and government. See some of it here & Here
Edmund King, AA President,
Well, since planes wouldn't fly without their dependence on cars, road transport and drivers at all and don't tend to share their paths with opposing transport, humans, and animals, I have to ask drivers why they support the AA whilst he is their spokesman? Do we slow train and plane travel after terrible crashes & pretend cycling's a viable alternative Mr King?1,780 killed on roads (yr end Sept 15) is equal to 3 big planes crashing with all passengers dying. If that happened we would see headlines.— Edmund King OBE (@AAPresident) February 4, 2016
Part of the anti driver philosophy and strategy is to continue to promote cycling on an equal playing field basis with drivers. This is totally false. Explained here.
Never is the oppression of drivers more apparent than in the manufactured and officially generated and condoned prosecution of hundreds of thousands of perfectly safe drivers every year with profit to third parties from it too, Example here. & Here and Even the AA in on it too. but that even the evidence required to jail drivers for long terms of imprisonment falls far short of that for any other crime. See
There are far too many spokesmen, politicians and officials interfering in road safety with no CV in the subject whatsoever. See here & here & Here
Drivers will deserve to be exploited, cheated and treated as dregs of the earth, whilst they allow the officials to treat them that way and reduce their importance to the community to being less than that of cyclists.
