    National Road Toll to be tested.

    Big BenAccording to the Times Online early next year tests are going to take place to look at a National Toll Road Scheme that may result in charges of up to £1.30 a mile on the most congested roads. The satellite tracking device will automatically deduct payments from a shadow account set up in the driver's name.The Transport Minister Paul Clark confirmed that the trials will go ahead despite many previous statements stating that national road-pricing would not happen. A study also said that the highest rate of £1.30 a mile would only be paid by 0.5% of traffic. In the long term, the technology could be used to introduce pricing on all roads with the price varying according to the time of day, direction of travel and the level of congestion.How do you drivers out there feel about this if it goes ahead? Do you think the government take enough money from us as it is driving our cars? Would you be able to afford to pay not only for your road tax, petrol (approx 80% tax now), insurance, service on your car and now maybe an added charge for using the roads altogether?Send us your thoughts.
