I SEE that you have chosen to write a light-hearted article on the abolition of road tax for classic cars ("The Whip and the classic car club mystery", 3 December). It is not funny. Consider our case. We run a car because: a) We live several miles from a bus route. b) I have a failing market garden business from which I must deliver fruit a round- trip of 24 miles every day in the season. c) My wife has multiple sclerosis and often has to visit the doctor or hospital (same distance).

Our income is around pounds 10,000 per year. Who is more deserving of a waiving of road tax?
