Default British Drivers - Another bone


The UK 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 and additional fine with your
monthly bill.

If you care about our freedoms and stopping the constant bashing of the driver, please sign the petition on No 10's new website at:
http://petitions.pm.gov.uk/traveltax/ (NOT A SPURIOUS ADDRESS!!!)

I have just been on the No10 site and there are LESS than 700k signed up to it. There are over 30 million vehicles and drivers in this country. Just to register 3% of those against this proposal there needs to be 900k signed up and the closing date is 20/02/07! Did you know about this?
