IAM Petition for scrapping VAT on Air Vests

Make a change by signing the petition to scrap VAT on life-saving air vests  

Please see communications below from the IAM

Dear member, Since our last email, we’ve been busy spreading the word about our campaign to scrap VAT on life-saving air vests. As part of our campaign to protect motorcyclists and reduce the number of people killed or injured on our roads, we’ve been speaking with cross-party MP’s and our partners to raise awareness of the importance of recognising motorcyclists as vulnerable road users. Did you know 1 in 5 road deaths on UK roads is a motorcyclist, and nearly two thirds of motorcyclists said the cost of safety wear has put them off buying it? We know more needs to be done to protect all road users, so by removing VAT on air vests will allow more people to access this life-saving PPE. Our petition now has over 4,000 signatures, getting us closer to achieving our target of 10,000. Thank you again for all your support. If you haven’t already done so, please consider sharing our petition with friends and family, and let’s make the roads a safe place for everyone.  

Best wishes, 
Nicholas Lyes
Director of Policy and Standards
