Windows 7: Britain and US fall out over LOndon's "Congestion Charge"

Extortionate tolls is something I definitely don't agree with. In some cases, it is far cheaper for firms to make a 45 mile (or whatever) detour and pay for the extra fuel involved than it is for them to pay the toll charge.

If all the tax that is collected through the road fund duty and what is imposed on the price of fuel (and other forms of vehicular taxation) is actually pumped back into the roads infrastructure rather than topping up the government's coffers, then the money would be there to fully resurface most, if not all, the existing roads in the UK mainland.

And what kind of vehicles does it not apply to?
I don't know the full list but basically it is any petrol or diesel vehicle that is not a Public Service Vehicle (Bus, Ambulance, Fire Engine, Police Vehicle etc.).

See Dwarfs post.

Any vehicle that emits less that 100 Co2 is exempt (upon application), plus licensed Taxi's, Buses and disabled people in possession of a UK Blue Badge (again you need to register).

As posted above, this is considered in London not as a 'congestion' charge but a nice little revenue earner.
