    Default ThinkTank to Scrap Road Tax and Introduce Tolls

    I see the Think-tanks have been at work again today with the latest suggestion that motorists take over and buy a share in the UK road network. No roadtax to pay but you will have to pay tolls on motorways and A roads, it will cost approx £1500 for each driver, but the £1500 share can be traded on the exchange.

    IOW the latest idea is to sell us our own roads to us.... brilliant idea.
    What a superb way to raise money to help the country out.. terrific.

    Anyone want to buy 500 trillion potholes ?

    I'm waiting for trackers to be fitted to ALL new cars, then your charged per mile...

    Wont be too long i reckon... If i end up getting taxed off the roads, i'll sell the house, quit my job and fire out a load more kids - seems to be the only way to live nowadays and be left alone!! (in the UK anyway)

    Think I'd better get some motoring miles clocked up while I have the chance.

    I really envy you younger members on here, being share holders in one of the best road networks in the world.

    TBH it's good to see this Labour financed thinktank coming up with another great idea, It's normally something daft and stupid.

    I shall sleep much better tonight knowing our country is in such capable hands. Really reasuring don't you agree.

    Road pricing will happen at some point,there are traffic sensors going into all major motorways as we speak,including the latest one on the m6 from Birmingham up to Stoke.
