Richard Wellings appeared on a number of BBC regional radio stations to discuss recent IEA research  on road privatisation.
Drivers are being used as a cash cow, paying almost £40 bn with very little of it going back into improving the system. A study by the IEA concludes that charging per mile will make the current network more responsive to the needs of drivers and reduce congestion. The charge could be as low as 6p per mile which is less than motorists currently pay for fuel duty. The study suggests varying prices during high traffic times which would incentivise drivers to travel at different times to lessen congestion.
