A report from the RAC Foundation says it is “inevitable” that motorists will be charged for every mile they travel in order to avoid gridlock on the roads.

The foundation’s director Professor Stephen Glaister believes a “pay-as-you-go” system could solve congestion problems.

He believes that motorists must accept a fundamental shift in the way England’s roads were managed and paid for.

The report comes as an Ipsos MORI report for the RAC Foundation reveals that 58% of drivers said that a pay-as-you-go per-mile system across all roads would make them reconsider how much they drive.

Prof Glaister’s report identified a series of problems facing road users and governments in the future, including a 33% increase in traffic by 2025 and a lack of overall vision for the road network.
