New Transport Tax in Aberdeen

Car drivers may have to pay 50p (80c) every time they enter Aberdeen (Oil capital of NE Scotland) under a new scheme to raise funds for transport improvements. This forgets that motorists already pay vast amounts towards road building and repair already, and why not introduce it into London firstly, as it soaks up most of the budget from the treasury for roads anyway....

Council planners claim that Aberdeen, the only Scottish city chosen for a major Government study on sustainable urban transport, is the ideal location for the introduction of a road pricing system.
