I can't stand all these bluddy pedestrians running about in the road with headphones in their ears not looking where they're going. Roads were designed for cars, not people, they're not even paying to use the roads because they don't pay road tax, Greens out!

Its not a road tax its Vehicle Exercise Duty and I as a runner/pesdestrian pay it as I own a car.

Perhaps you should consider that the monies raised by these runners will be for a charity that you or a loved one will benefit from at some point in the future.

Idiot, the old road taxwas replaced by an excise duty depending on a vehicles emissions (which is why cyclists don't pay). Road building and maintenance is paid for out of the public purse which many of these 'bluddy pedestrians' pay into. plus the organisers pay the Council for a licence to run the event

CONGRATULATIONS TO ALL FINISHERS.
Sidelined by a permanent achilles tendon condition which won't even let me run for a bus, I am delighted that it was such a good day for those who ran the half marathon and offer my good wishes to all who are training for the big one in April.

Contrary to appearances, it is NOT compulsory to be mean-minded or unable to spell correctly in order to make a comment.

I know, I thought as there were no comments on here I would just write a brief parody of the usual anti-everything petrol-head comments that I always see in the Argus comments.

Up until 2001 it is road tax from then onwards its based on emissions.Whatever way you look at it this Country would collapse without the huge revenue of every form they get from the car driver.Sorry I know the truth hurts
Truth is, the overall cost of Britain's car usage is estimated to cost the nation about 10 billion pounds annually. Cars are effectively subsidised to the tune of 10 billion by the everyday tax payer. That's not to say people should stop using cars for trips where only a car will do, but if there's alternative, we should be taking the alternative.
