Andy, I have a feeling that you said you owned a Mitsubishi outlander PHEV?. My understanding is that this large, heavy 4x4 is not liable to VED, pays just 10 quid a year for congestion charge exemption and, used carefully - pays almost no fuel duty.

I'd say that this simply shows that the government is trying to influence the type of car people use - rather than trying to price them out of their cars.

As for fines - surely they are simply to try to get people to obey the law rather than to stop them driving - I find it utterly bizarre that you would use this to try to prove that those in power are trying to discourage car use - but if you insist then it is easily countered by pointing out that the punishments for major transgressions are almost always unbelievably lenient.
