Reduce Fuel Duty and Introduce Road Charging instead

Significantly reduce the amount of duty charged on fuel, and offset this by introducing road charging on all motorways, on all other major trunk routes and in all conurbations of over 50,000 people.

Why does this idea matter?

The present system penalises those people who live in rural areas where the distances that have to be travelled to do anything are larger than in urban areas and where the alternatives to private transport are limited.  This system would instead shift the burden to those people who have the most alternatives available to them and to those who are doing the most to pollute the world we live in.
