KEEP CAMBRIDGE FREE - NO CONGESTION CHARGING in the City of Cambridge

119 Signatures Goal: 250

To CAMBRIDGE CITY COUNCIL From RESIDENTS OF CAMBRIDGE CITY Keep Cambridge City and the rest of the county free. No road pricing here. No new road tolls. No tax on travel. No government bribes to coerce travellers onto inconvenient and expensive public transport. Congestion charging is very inconvenient for the user. The London scheme only makes a profit due to penalties. Other schemes could lead to unexpected large debts with no way to dispute them. How is the driver to know in advance even roughly how much a journey would cost Road pricing is not about reducing congestion, but pricing private cars off the road. It damages business, commuting and social activity. It hurts most those least able to pay. It requires a vast expensive system to monitor every journey. It is an intolerable interference with our freedom. If the council is determined to press ahead, then let the people of Cambridge decide in a fair referendum whether they want congestion charging. This petition will close on 15-10-07, and then be sent to Cambridge City Council.
