The government's proposal to introduce road pricing 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 Â£200 and in a recent study by
the BBC, the lowest monthly bill was Â£28 for a rural florist and Â£194 for
a delivery driver. A non working mother who used the car to take the kids
to school paid Â£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 in time
you can probably expect a Notice of Intended Prosecution with your monthly bill.
