Finally, I would like a full explanation of what Highways spend our road tax on, as it certainly isn’t on identifying road defects.

We have interpreted your reference to “road tax” to mean Vehicle Tax, this a central Government tax and is not specifically used to maintain roads.
Details of funding for maintaining roads is available on following link :
