Reducing congestion in Holland

Posted by josediacono @ 10:58 am under Uncategorized

As a former Dutch resident and hearing about regular and horrendous gridlock on Dutch motorways I was interested to read about Dutch plans to track every vehicle and charge based on kms  – so no more set vehicle registration fees, just a pay-for-infrastructure use system. I’ve always felt that fixed registration fees encourage you to use your car rather than public transport – because you’ve already paid a lot before you even get into the car. So I hope this goes ahead (starts in 2012)and it works
