Foreign Vehicle Road Toll
There are so many potholes on our roads that it would take more than 11 years at the current rate to fill them in, and that is just England and Wales. http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/uk/7210472.stm “You go in there”, this was a very rusty Portacabin, or some old Lorry Container; I certainly felt very hesitant, but with their ‘inherent’ Swiss Guard bad temper and a gun around an ample waist – no choice was offerd! Inside, an ATM, or an automatic payment system machine, where they give you a green sticker to put on your windscreen for £45.00. Of course, it would be impossible to have this in the UK, for foreign visiting cars and lorries: it would be far too easy to collect and administer! Switzerland has an annual road toll called a “Vignette” (a green windscreen sticker the size of a tax disc) of CHF 40 is levied on all cars and motorcycles using the freeways. Vignettes are available at border crossings, as well as at all Swiss post offices and petrol stations. Wake up GB!
