Ve­hi­cle own­ers sub­mit­ting plates in droves

Kathimerini English - - Focus -

pe­riod up to Jan­uary 9, 122,000 ve­hi­cle own­ers sub­mit­ted their li­cense plates, mak­ing for a sig­nif­i­cant loss of state rev­enues amount­ing to some 5060 mil­lion eu­ros, given that th­ese are mostly ve­hi­cles with big en­gines and there­fore high road taxes. In­sur­ance com­pa­nies have been hit by col­lat­eral dam­age, as the num­ber of in­sured ve­hi­cles shrank by about 92,000 in the same pe­riod. Trans­port Min­istry fig­ures show that from 2010 up to 2015, the plates of more than 1 mil­lion ve­hi­cles were re­turned, to avoid tax pay­ment.
