Policy Development - Road Pricing
There is little doubt in some areas we are reaching a point of 'carmegeddon' and I'm sure we all know of areas that suffer gridlock situations, especially at rush hour and school run times as previously pointed out. The government answer has always been to increase the road network capacity, which if car usage increases at its present rate results in a short term fix. In addition to this local authorities struggle to maintain the existing road network as we can see from the pot hole problems we have, nevermind having to look after more miles of tarmac. An improved public transport network is required, and will probably have to be heavily subsidised from central or regional government. It has to be clean, green and reliable and one that can provide a real alternative to the car.

Regarding road pricing, I believe there needs to be a feasibility study into abolishing road tax and absorbing this into fuel tax.
