|London, 3 Feb 2007.
For immediate release.
"Road charging will be levied at its highest on the most congested roads. It will be impossible for drivers to know if a road is congested until they are on it, sitting in a traffic jam with no escape route whilst the black box in their car clocks up pound signs for the chancellor.The ABD urges members of rural communities who may be affected to join the 645,000 who have already signed the petition against road charging at http://petitions.pm.gov.uk/traveltax/.
Many will not wish to take the risk and will of course seek alternative routes. Unfortunately for villagers and users of quiet country lanes, these will very often be the routes they seek out causing a massive increase in traffic levels."
