Justice for over-taxed motorists


Over 30 million motorists have been taken for granted for too long. We are seen as cash cows for the limited services we receive, and are treated unreasonably by many authorities.

This website is campaigning for a fair deal for the motorist (particularly in London, where the Mayor and TFL are trying it on. Also in the London Borough of Hammersmith and Fulham, with its anti-car council). Don’t suffer in silence – the authorities are banking on you giving up and just putting up. Thank you for your support....
