Jeff Oneill started this petition to Irish Government and

In Ireland, as pretty much everyone knows whether you own a car or not It had become increasingly hard to own car regarding Tax Vrt and insurance. As I've limited characters I will list what you’re signing this petition for

- Young drivers have been quoted prohibitive prices to get insurance for one year. This rules out a lot of young drivers (particularly students) from driving

- Older Cars Are loaded because of their age despite being subject to a vehicle roadworthiness test (NCT) every 2 year and every year for every car +10 years old

- covid 19 has resulted in less fatalities and less people on the roads so premiums should reflect this 

- Imports outside the Eu Are loaded despite facing the same NCT

- Cars over 20 years old are uninsurable for young drivers until they are 25 and even 30 years old now (unless the person owned the car before it reached 20 years old). 

- We cannot get insurance from other companies within the EU despite being a member state. This is a barrier to trade

- for those who import cars outside of Ireland, you are subject to VRT (a barrier to trade) this VRT is based on the assumed value of the car, the CO2 emissions and NOx emissions. This means we’re paying more than other countries for the same car.

- we already pay an emissions tax annually. The cost of this Is also extortionate. For my car in the UK it is 20 GBP per year. In Ireland It Is 200€ Per year for the same car. 


- Cars in Ireland will increase in value to reflect the costs of VRT and import duty bared. 

This petition is to enforce a watertight guarantee that

VRT is abolished,

road (emissions) tax is priced in line with other EU countries,

Insurance prices are to be audited so that drivers are receiving a fair price

insurance regulation regarding insuring cars +20 years old and for drivers over 25 years old to own a classic policy is absolished.

and finally that the reduction in revenue from all of this is not brought in behind closed doors through other taxes I.e through petrol and diesel
