A report by the Association for Consultancy and Engineering (ACE) has suggested that road tax should be tailored to individual drivers, based on factors such as journey length, time of day, and financial circumstances.

The group, which represents infrastructure corporations across the UK, suggested that a blanket approach to road pricing makes drivers 'suspicious' of how their money is used.
