Goverment proposal to introduce road pricing

Plans are afoot for the road tax system to be abolished and a new system, a pay as you drive scheme called “Travel Tax”, to be brought into line. Trials have already begun in some areas. Your car, bike, truck etc will be fitted with a GPS tracking device which tracks where your car goes, when it went and how fast it got there.

The government’s proposal will mean you having to purchase a tracking device for your car and paying a monthly bill to use it. The tracking device will cost about £200 and in a recent study by the BBC, the lowest monthly bill was £28 for a rural florist and £194 for a delivery driver. A non working Mum who used the car to take the kids to school paid £86 in one month. On top of this massive increase in tax, you will be tracked. Somebody will know where you are at all times. They will also know how fast you have been going, so even if you accidentally creep over a speed limit you can expect a Notice of Intended Prosecution with your monthly bill!

If you care about our freedoms and stopping the constant bashing of the car driver, please sign the petition on No 10’s new website at http://petitions.pm.gov.uk/traveltax/
