Road-charging petition from Scots tories

21 February 2007

The Conservative party in Scotland has launched its own online petition against road charging.

After Peter Robert's anti-road-charging petition collected 1.7 million signatures on Downing Street's website, the Scottish Tories have launched their petition at, saying: 'Labour, the Lib Dems and the SNP all voted for road tolls in the Scottish Parliament. Tell them that Scotland Says No To Tolls by signing our petition.'

Scottish drivers seem to be the most opposed to a nationwide road-charging plan, with 81% of Scots against the proposal to combat congestion, according to a BBC poll.

75% of drivers in Wales and the Midlands are against road charging, while 72% in the South East are against it. Elections to the Scottish parliament will be held in May.
