It is indeed a tax to drive on roads.

It isn't a tax to pay for roads, any more than a tax on beer pays for pubs. (Local authorities pay for all local roads anyway, and they never see a penny of it.)

The total amount raised in vehicle excise duty doesn't even equal the amount spent mopping up the blood after road accidents.
