Are You Ready for Road Charging?

By raccars Published

Road charging, we’ve been hearing about it for years, but is it finally about to happen? Well, according to the RAC, we could see road charging in the UK by 2020. With traffic estimated to double over the next quarter of a century, it seems impossible to avoid such a new way of tackling the roads, but will it happen?

The RAC stated: "If you look 15 years down the line, the cars and the way we use them will change. The government needs to overhaul taxation systems to keep up with these changes, as current systems are already out of date and unfair on the UK motorist."

So it looks inevitable. Whether we like it or not, something will have to change. Let’s just hope the petrol prices have dropped a bit by 2012!
