[Warning: Politics!] :: Travel Tax - yet more stealth taxes....

I know, its a bit political but I'm on the side that says we pay too much as it is....

Anyway, this is a petition against the introduction of pay even more as you travel driving which quite frankly would cost be a small fortune and the fact that only a fraction of the tax collected on fuel and road tax goes back on roads makes me sick and angry.

The description:

The idea of tracking every vehicle at all times is sinister and wrong. Road pricing is already here with the high level of taxation on fuel. The more you travel - the more tax you pay.

It will be an unfair tax on those who live apart from families and poorer people who will not be able to afford the high monthly costs.

Please Mr Blair - forget about road pricing and concentrate on improving our roads to reduce congestion.
