Peter Robertsâ€™ petition to scrap plans to introduce road pricing got top billing on BBC Radio 4’s Today programme this morning. The flagship 8:10am interview saw Transport Minister Douglas Alexander well and truly wriggling, follow link. I had a couple of comments on my blog today suggesting the site had been closed down at this time but I am quite prepared to believe that it has just been overwhlemed by volumes. The petition hit the million mark around 10am on Saturday and had put on another 100,000 by early this morning. During the course of the morning another 50,000 have signed up.
Peter Roberts’ petition to scrap plans to introduce road pricing reads as follows:
We the undersigned petition the Prime Minister to Scrap the planned vehicle tracking and road pricing policy.
