A FAIR DEAL FOR THE MOTORIST

 

 

 

 

 

   

Why has the government been so quiet on recent developments?

 

 

The government has broken its promise on no moves towards tolls ‘in this Parliament’

 

 

 

HERE’S HOW YOU CAN HELP

STOP ROAD PRICING (TOLLS) AND

THE CREEPING ROADS SELL-OFF

 

After the 2015 General Election, there is the threat of road pricing (tolls) on England’s main roads, enabled by some form of privatisation or outsourcing. The leaky promise in the Coalition Agreement to rule out tolls and any preparation for tolls in this Parliament (‘for cars on existing roads’) expires in May, but remember that as a voter, you have some power to influence.

·       If your MP is standing for re-election, please write to them a.s.a.p. – even if you live in Scotland, Wales or Northern Ireland. Road tolling is likely to affect those who drive across the border or have goods delivered through England. (You can also write to candidates who will be after your vote; check local media for contact details).

 

·       Keep your letter polite and persuasive.

 

·       Keep it reasonably short and leave out unrelated issues.

 

·       Why not get your family, friends and neighbours to write too?
