Did you catch a TV programme ' Car Wars' I think it was on last Sunday on 2, I only saw the last couple of minutes, but they were talking with some government official - he was saying that development was well advanced on a national road pricing scheme. The plan was to abolish Road Tax, and reduce fuel duty and instead charge for mileage driven, with higher rates for city centres and lower rates the more rural it got , where it is generallly accepteted that public transport is not a viable option. This was to be run using GPRS transmitters, and tracking with satellites. This gave the potential of tracking every vehicle movement in the UK.
