Future road pricing is not ‘inevitable’

So the RAC say that to avoid total gridlock on the UK’s roads we will have to be charged for every mile we travel.

Lets face it, we are already charged for every mile we travel with duty and VAT on fuel, it doesn’t stop us flooding the roads with cars and the atmosphere with CO2.

At the end of the day the constant upward pressure on fuel prices will force people off the road and onto public transport, this is inevitable when our transport infrastructure is powered by the finite resources of the planet, fossil fuels.

have a look at powerswitch.org for more information and join the discussion if you like.  It’s friendly enough.
