So, it looks like they\’re going to go ahead with the trials of full road pricing:
The Telegraph can disclose that the Government is pushing ahead with plans for a national road-pricing scheme, including testing "spy in the sky" technology.
Excellent, on two grounds.
1) Paying by the mile, according to the road and the time of day, is the only way that congestion can be properly reduced, because it\’s the only way the roads can be properly priced.
2) They\’re running extensive trials. It may well be that the technology just isn\’t up to it, or that the costs are greater than any beneits. Worth finding out if it\’s possible before thinking about whether it\’s desirable on a full scale.
