Paying for Road Use

Paying for Road Use Instead of taxes upon cars and petrol Governments could price road use. This would more precisely capture the external costs of motoring - both pollution and congestion. This report from the Commission for Integrated Transport outlines a plan to use Global Positioning System technology to charge road users while removing fuel and road taxes. The results are a predicted reduction in congestion on the roads of 44%, a reduction in journey times and a reduction in the amount of traffic by almost 5%.
