"Only a pedant would split hairs between vehicle tax and road tax."
It's not pedantry. The term 'vehicle tax' suggests a tax on an expensive thing. The term 'road tax' suggests that car pay for the roads, and in some sense the cars own the roads - this could not be further from the truth.
Taxation on cars makes up for the income tax that people don't want to pay.
