ACC’s new safety-related tier system for annual car licensing, which is supposed to give discounted ACC levies to owners of safer vehicles, does the exact opposite in some cases, says the car review website dogandlemon.com.
Editor Clive Matthew-Wilson, who is an active road safety campaigner, says:
"Whoever prepared this list of ACC levies appears to have been on drugs. For example, the petrol-powered 2001-2011 NIssan Caravan gets a reduced levy of just $68.46 per year.”
“This is a vehicle that had one of the worst results ever in Australian crash tests.”
