Default M6 Toll

Part of the M6 going past Birmingham was closed yesterday evening
presumably for road works. In these circumstances should the M6 toll be
free?

I used the toll road and there was very little traffic on it. There was
very little information about what the charge would be, and I did not
get a receipt.

Default M6 Toll

I think folk are soon going to have to assume tolls, since many cities are
going to charge at the outskirts if you use your car, I can see roads going
this way too, after all if eventually the idea is to go electric, the taxing
could be a nightmare, safer to charge for where cars go and you could
dismantle car tax and the like and just pay to use them depending on the
congestion and cleanness of the vehicles.

I've always seen large signs telling me the cost.

No thanks, you'll have no idea of what a journey will cost, especially
with variable road pricing. Just go to a per mile, fixed rate, set a
level that replaces both VED and fuel duty and brings the same total
into the treasury.

You have to push a button to confirm you want one, (and hope there's
still paper in the device)

Makes more sense to pay for roads out of general taxation revenue.
