ok, so, after nearly 2 years of legal battles and political warfare, our government is pushing ahead with an extremely expensive user pay toll system, when a fuel levy would have been so much cheaper.

see the cost of administering the tolling is more than the money it needs to bring in to pay for the roads.

yet they insist.

now, how does that impact me: its an optical system. it recognizes the vehicle, photograph the number plate (or detects the electronic tag you carry with you) and sends you a bill.

ironically, bikes cost nearly as much as a car per km, so no benefit for using a smaller vehicle.

anybody has experience regarding these gantry toll systems?

revolution indeed. for the first time in this country's history, all races and all classes are saying NO in a single voice! we believe huge corruption is taking place. the company contracted to manage it has indicated that they will make 50 million euros profit from it per year, when a fuel levy has 0 admin costs.

we are so angry.
