I spotted this 'car' today. Only 31 have ever been sold in the Netherlands. The car tax on this vehicle is € 63,000 + sales tax.

How come? It's just a Toyota. Have you mistakenly put a comma in the wrong place?

What a strange price. They aren't popular but you see them around in the USA. They cost only about 20 000 EUR there. 63k, LOL I am surprised they even managed to move 31 stk

It has a 4.0 L engine. The Dutch car tax (BPM) is calculated over CO2 emissions. To be precise, the car tax is € 62991. On top of that is a 21% sales tax over the net value.

You can check the specs here: https://ovi.rdw.nl/default.aspx?kenteken=8-XFP-60

You can't put a comma anywhere else in "63000".

I could buy my car six times with the amount of taxes the owner of that Toyota paid.

I have never been so much in favor for cyclists in my life. That bus driver is a big douche. What was he thinking?

I think i will move to Greece one day. So beautiful here. Btw. Serbia-Hungary water polo final is being played right now. The resort is full of Hungarians and Serbs. Live TV is installed at every cafe. Hope no streetfights will follow :-D

He tried to overtake the cyclist. The main cause of the accident is that the right lane has a width of 4.4m before that road crossing but only 3.6m afterwards. In a width of 3.6m there is no place for a bus and a cyclist side by side. The bus started overtaking in a section where there was enough place for that but did not manage to finish it there.

Knowing that he is a bus driver there is a pretty good chance he has driven that route at least a couple of times before. He could/should've known that narrower section was coming
