A 'vignette' type system similar to Switzerland whereby you pay an annual fee of, say, £50 to use UK Motorways. HGVs would also have to pay a higher rate – say £500. The Motorway card could be paid for when you renew your car tax and a sticker with the year could be put on your windscreen to show you had paid for annual access to the UK Motorway network. Foreign HGVs and road users would also have to pay for the Motorway card and could buy theirs online or at UK entry ports.
