This system has been operating well in Ireland for many years now. It is quite easy to pre register your vehicle so that tolls are automatically charged to preferred credit card or bank account when recognised by anpr camera. Alternatively you have a set period of time to pay after using a toll section. Quite simple in reality.

Thank you for that.

It is a long time since I was in Central London, and I often wondered how one would pay for a one off journey, or if one got lost and entered the zone without intending to.

Personally there are other things I would do first. Do away with the Car Tax completely and put the cost on to fuel. That way the polluter pays and those that drive most pay most. Replace the present Tax Disk with a Disk which shows that the car is Insured and has a current MOT so the traffic wardens can do their jobs more effectively. There are too many uninsured and non roadworthy cars on the road and only the Police can spot them. This sort of thing is done in other countries so the technology is surely there.

But at the end of the day it is all about getting more taxes in so the treasury will probably call the shots on this one.

You of all people should know that any cost cutting measure actually achieves the opposite

OK - tell me how the Government will introduce the IT necessary for this within budget considering companies like Capita will be involved.
