Road Pricing & the reserves

Discussion in 'Army Reserve' started by press_it, Nov 17, 2006.

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. just seen the report on the news (in work, thats why not on the p###) about the goverments road pricing idea, that may come in within the next 5 to 10 years.
    this could well hit the reserve forces pockets a bit, especialy those who travel a distance to specialist units :x .

    ok, so I travel 110 miles each way to Brize Norton at least once a month (sometimes more), usualy on a friday afternoon/evening (sometimes during rush hour) & return on a sunday, same distance.
    how much extra will this new road charge cost me on top of fuel & road tax & will I be able to claim it back? will the forces be exempt for duty travel (we hope) ? :?

    yet another b####y way for the gov'nmt to make living in this country more expensive again :cry: .

    How about worrying if/when it comes in. Post again in 5 to 10 years.
