    Complete bull****. Congestion could tackle through traffic management not tax. Tax doesn’t manage but collect money.

    The few simple things:
    - Variable speed limit (like on M25 and M42) – works you still travel with less stop-starts. Speed cameras should works both way – to fine those who speeding and slow drivers as well. The point is to have constant flow in traffic without clogs and jams.
    - Ban the lorries from fast lane. Common road sing in continental Europe(usually uphill). This means no more idiots trying to overtake on 50mph for 3 miles.
    - Decent public transport (like in Germany for example).
    - Tolls roads if its deliver (like M6 Toll – worth the money).

    But so far what they come up with – charge the motorist per mile. You need a computer to figure out the exact cost of each journey and when you caught up in traffic in rush up – they are going to rip you off – typical labour approach (take more money from public and waste it).

    Don't worry about it. IF the trial works and IF the technology works and IF its not political suicide then its a good10 years away. There's at least two General Elections before then....

    What I want to know is how it would work. The concept of charging different amounts to drive on different roads at different times I can understand - but how does the driver know how much is being charged on that road vs another one?

    Perhaps SatNav will have charge information transmitted to it. "Quick! Turn Left. Its a ****** quid a mile up ahead!"

    Yes if it ever comes into force we'll all be driving off roaders, ( can you re-map a Massey Fergusons ! ) I can see myself ringing up my local K&N supplier and asking them if they do a induction kit for a combine harvester ! !
