Think-tank calls for 'pay-as-you-drive' charging

A free market think-tank believes new private express lanes should be built to ease congestion, with the introduction of pay-as-you-go motoring.

Tolled express lanes would essentially allow motorists, tracked by satellite, to drive faster than other road users. This reform, advocated by the Institute of Economic Affairs, would introduce 'pay-as-you-drive' charging, where drivers would pay up to seven pence a mile in a series interlocking road pricing schemes.
