Motorists and government alike agree something must be done about congestion (LGC, 23 July). Indeed, the success of the M6 toll road demonstrates that attitudes have shifted favourably towards charging, but only because motorists can still use the existing M6.

Motorists have told the RAC they are more likely to support road-user charges if they are introduced instead of other motoring taxes.

About one-third of motoring taxes are re-invested in our road network, and motorists would like to see this figure increase. Motorists also welcome creative thinking from councils on tackling congestion without pricing motorists off the road - park and ride schemes, for example. For any scheme to be successful, up-front investment in all forms of transport must be made.
