Anti Pay as you Go GPS Based UK Road Tax sign now

This petition has been created to allow UK road users voice their opposition to the suggested new scheme suggested by the UK Transport Secretary Alistair Darling.

In this scheme UK vehicles will be fitted with a 'black box' GPS device enabling them to monitor the whereabouts of all native vehicles in the UK at any time. How long will it be before they want to monitor our whereabouts at all times? It can't be done all at once, but this is yet another step in that direction.

Drivers will be taxed depending on what roads they use, with costs being around 2 pence per mile on rural roads up to 1.34 per mile on busier roads such as the M25 London orbital road.

This is an invasion of our privacy, and yet another chip away at our rights of freedom. Had this been suggested in any of the european countries, we would be experiencing some sort of national strike. But seeing as this is the UK, we will all lie back and accept it. I don't want this to happen, and this petition has been put together to voice our opinion.

Although this scheme is set to come into play in 15 years time, pilot schemes are planned in major cities within five years. The costs involved will be similar to the recently abolished Identity Card scheme that was planned for all UK residents. This scheme alone cost the UK Tax Payer millions!

We already pay around 90\% duty on petrol and deisel and annually have to pay for VED (Road Tax). Under this new scheme, these will be reduced or abolished, but we believe that motorists will end up paying more.
