If you own a car or bike read on...

This has been copied from another forum, but as most of us have cars and/or motorbikes it is relevant.....

Importance: High

Over 71,000 signatures according to this morning's "Today" programme and a lot more people are signing this than the petitions to halt ID cards and to reverse the hunting ban. This hits the General Public in the pocket. Politicians only seem to take notice when their cushy Parliamentary Seats are at risk.

Sign and pass it on. It only takes a minute.

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 200 and in a recent study by the BBC,
The lowest monthly bill was 28 for a rural florist and 194 for a delivery
Driver.
A non working Mum who used the car to take the kids to school paid 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 you can expect a
NIP with your monthly bill.
If you care about our freedoms and stopping the constant bashing of the car
Driver, please sign the petition on No 10's new website

[petitions.pm.gov.uk]

Please pass this on to anyone who owns a car/motorcycle. It affects them.

Paying for using busy roads and not for quiet roads sounds good to me smiling smiley As long as they cut/abandon fuel duty
I went to the Warren Millar film screening at Nevis last year left about 10.45pm (I think) - drove 70 miles home - number of cars that I passed in the opposite direction?
