    Default M6 Toll V M6 Rip Off......

    In the course of my work i use the M6 in the brum area fairly regularly both north and south,i had been up to Warrington this morning, and then had to go to West Brom,got as far as Junction 12,and yes you've guessed ,traffic jam,now this is the junc where it splits onto M6 toll,and the signs say...M6 toll clear, but you know what hardly anyone using it.
    This has got to be the craziest thing ever,a clear road with no traffic,and you wonder why...yes the bleedin cost..£6 one way...Rippin off motorists agen i say,but when you look at the green issue here ie 1000's of cars and lorries doin 5 mile an hour spewing out fumes galore? it's a no brainer...and the gov keep sayin"were gonna hammer ya for pollutin...this f***kin gov make me puke.......ahhh feel better now iv'e got that off me chest...

    Rant over and its over to you....

    I know what you mean, I sometimes stay in Cannock because I work in Warwick I go down the M6 Toll at £4.50 a shot. It is steep, however, £4.50 vs sitting in the rush hour on the M6 is worth every penny!

    I will not use the M6 toll out of principle. I don,t see why we should have to pay twice to use the roads. It would not be so bad if they did charge you untill they got their building costs back then gave the road over to the relivent councils that it runs through. Not making a Huge profit out of it.

    The M6 Toll is a privately owned highway so I guess they can charge whatever they want it's not as if we pay enough Road Fund License for our wonderful government to be able to build roads

    Company pays for me too. Use it at least once per week although sometimes the jam just moves to the M42 when going south.

    The point im'm trying to make is that this road should have been built using public money ie(road fund licence) as it used to be called,not car TAX as it is now called,thing is when you want use juncs 11 to 5 its cheaper anyway to sit in traffic,its just that if the toll road was free ,which it should be anyway then this would relieve the build up for obvious reasons...oh and i wonder why the gov changed the name from road fund licence to road tax....i digress.

    living a stones throw from the liverpool tunnels i'm used to paying to travel so paying £4.50 for the M6 toll doesn't bother me.

    what does bother me is the big signs saying M6 TOLL CLEAR when there's accidents on there with lanes blocked or when they start stacking and filtering traffic at the toll gates because there's an accident further up the M6.
    i thought we where paying the premium to gain priority in these situations!
