I recently received the following from a friend. I consider her to be very reliable, but am wondering if her statements are a bit exaggerated. 'Would be grateful for anyone who is 'in the know' for their comments.

By the way, I have signed the petition!

The government's proposal to introduce road pricing will mean you
having to purchase a tracking device for your car and paying a monthly
bill to use it.
The tracking device will cost about 200 and in a recent study by the
BBC, the lowest monthly bill was 28 for a rural florist and 194 for
a delivery driver. A non working Mum who used the car to take the kids
to school paid 86 in one month.
On top of this massive increase in tax, you will be tracked. Somebody
will know where you are at all times.
They will also know how fast you have been going, so even if you
accidentally creep over a speed limit you can expect a NIP with your
monthly bill.
If you care about our freedoms and stopping the constant bashing of
the car driver, please sign the petition on No 10's new website.

These fees are outrageous
