The Government is still pushing ahead with plans to introduce local road pricing schemes, despite massive public opposition to the plans.

  • Motorcycles get road pricing trial
  • Government secretive on road pricing trials

Opposition parties say the bill is little more than an attempt by the Government to eke more cash out of motorists, while passing the buck of responsibility onto local councils.
