ACC are currently seeking feedback on their payments. Can I encourage everyone here to share their thoughts on this subject with ACC - I've attached mine below.
"The vehicle levy should be used to incentive the purchase and usage of safe and healthy cars. Instead of giving a blanket discount, we should sale the ACC levy based on impact. For example fuel emissions make a huge difference to the health of New Zealanders. By reducing the levy for electric cars and increasing the levy for fossil fuel cars, we better cover the boarder health benefits of polluting vehicles and encourage the public to make the smart healthy choice to purchase an electric vehicle or a vehicle with better fuel economy. Finally there are different safety ratings for cars. A better rating and a safer car should be cheaper than a car with a lower safety rating. "
