    http://petitions.pm.gov.uk/traveltax/ go here and sign to show you don't support the proposed new road pricing tax.

    If you're not aware of it, the governemnt wants to do away with tax discs and a one-off yearly or 6-monthly tax and make us pay by the mile, with prices higher than £1 per mile in urban areas at rush hour.
    This would involve fitting GPS trackers to your car, which the governemt assures wouldn't be used for keeping data on your speed and movement patterns etc. but we all know what government assurances are worth.

    May not be noticed, but over 300,000 have signed already and it can't hurt to make your feelings known.

    I don't drive, or have feelings.

    Presumably there's somewhere to sign if you agree with the government?
