This sight may soon be a 'thing of the past' on British roads

There'll be no more 'nipping down the road in the car to pick up fish 'n' chips, if Britain adopts 'Pay as you go'.

It is in the planning stages that British drivers will soon have to pay per mile travelled. Crazy though it may sound it has a lot of benefits:

People will walk more and so get much needed exercise.

Petrol bills will go down (BUT this COULD have an adverse effect by driving petrol prices UP if demand lowers)

Pollution will, indeed, be reduced.

I'm just left wondering how the Government will collect. Will they be putting meters in cars? Will there be 'collectors' placed sporadically around, checking odometers, writing down distances travelled in order to send drivers a monthly bill?

Food for thought as we get into our cars to pop down the street for the morning paper.

The funny story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
