Another Cash Cow
Nanny has found another way to raise revenues to fund her bloated regime. This is a particularly fine wheeze, whereby motorists who are stuck in traffic jams may face a £20 fine if they leave their engines on in the jam.
Nanny will introduce a pilot scheme run, by West Sussex County Council, from January 2009 in Shoreham-by-Sea.
The task of dishing up fines will be allotted to local traffic wardens (aren't these people now called civil enforcement officers?), who will be tasked with looking for motorists idling 'too long' in traffic.
The official rationale for the scheme is to reduce air pollution (I always thought that it was energy inefficient to keep turning your engine on and off?).
The cynic within me thinks that this is just another tax raising idea from our bankrupt state.
