I've just had a thought; it may not be the first time this thought has been thought of, but I haven't come accross it elsewhere…
I think all motorways, and possibly A–roads, cities, and what–have–you, should be toll roads and that this should replace car tax.
Then, if you only drive occasionally, you only pay tolls occasionaly, so it doesn't cost you much; a sort of "Pay as you go" driving tarrif.
On the other hand, if you drive a lot then you could subscribe to a scheme where, for a monthly fee, to get a certain number of tolls included, and then pay for any extra. There could be several tarrifs, with varying monthly fees and included tolls and this monthly contract scheme would also have the convenience of not needing any cash at the time.
Personally I think this is a good idea, but I'm sure I've come accross something like it somewhere before…
