Had to happen one day to-plug the hole.
Current worldwide issues have brought it forward though.

2025 or 2026 are the dates that are been touted in the Media…

Ad it was bound to happen, so no one should be shocked… and it will only apply to newly registered cars at that date,…

I would rather have road pricing that VED…

I agree, road pricing for me over VED any day.
That said, with my journalist’s hat on, hard to think of a more effective way to lose an election than introducing road pricing…

I wonder how this would effect lease vehicles? Or ONTO cars .
Assuming it would be prepaid on the mileage set out on your agreement’s.

Obviously all speculation

I daresay it would look similar to now - you go over your 800 miles, you buy a bolt on or pay per mile over it.
