Imaginative Thinking To Tackle Road Congestion Is Long Overdue
Don Foster MP, Liberal Democrat Shadow Transport Secretary, commenting on reports that drivers could face "pay as you go" charges, said...

Main Image"At last some imaginative thinking from Alistair Darling. With congestion rising and costing British businesses over 20 billion a year he should have acted sooner.

"Having watched Ken Livingstone's popularity grow due to congestion charging, Alistair Darling has at last dared to raise his head over the parapet.

"Britain urgently needs measures that target the most congested areas of the country without penalising those in rural regions who often have no choice but to use their cars.

"The public needs a safe, affordable and reliable alternative to their car if Britain's roads are ever going to see a reduction in traffic and congestion."
