Road charging method dictated by European Directive

The type of road charging is not up for discussion, should our dear leader decide to ignore the 1.5 million signatories to his petition system, and go ahead with a road charging scheme.

The definition of an electronic road toll has already been spelt out by European Directives, and it would appear that they are more big brother centric that the UK.

An electronic toll system must use one or more of the following technologies for the electronic devices used in its communications interface

(a) satellite positioning;

(b) mobile communications using the GSM-GPRS standard (reference GSM TS 03.60/23.060);

(c) 5.8 gigahertz microwave technology.

technologies are those specified in article 2(1) of European Parliament
and Council Directive 2004/52/EC (OJ L200, 07.06.2004, p.50,
incorporating changes made by the corrigendum to the original version
of the directive published in OJ L 166, 30.04.2004, p.124).

The regulations can be found here.

We just need to convince the Government that this is a bad idea. Full stop.
