The drive in to work will become far more taxingOn 10 Aug 2004 in Personnel Today HR Hartley – our irascible insider on… being driven to distractionA story that scared the bejesus out me hit the national headlines a coupleof weeks ago: car tax and petrol duty could be phased out within 15 years, butdrivers will have to pay for every mile they travel. It is proposed that two taxes will be replaced with a new system of roadtolls using satellite tracking of every vehicle on the road and motorists willapparently pay between 1p and £1.34 a mile, depending on how much congestionthere is on the road they’re on. Transport minister Alistair Darling proudlyannounced nationwide tolls could cut congestion by half. Now I am all for radical moves to bring some respite to the roads and aidsurvival of the planet. But this one would force me to give up my current job(that’s if I haven’t been hoofed out by then, of course). I have a 120-miledaily round commute. I choose to do it by car because (a) the train takes two-and-half-hours eachway as opposed to just over an hour by road, (b) it works out about £1,500 ayear cheaper than by rail, and (c) I get to sit down, instead of having tobalance on foot because the other couldn’t fit into an overcrowded carriage. Naturally, I would change my mind overnight about taking the train if ourcreaking rail system was brought up to scratch. I would also choose to worklocally if the towns and cities near to my home offered good employmentopportunities and decent salaries. Like many workers, family commitments bind me to living where I do. Yet inthe overcrowded South East, it seems that only Londoncan offer me real career opportunities and the right wage to support myfamily’s living costs. If the Government goes ahead with these plans I’ll be up the Thameswithout a paddle. So will a lot of other workers. Prepare for a problem, HR.Hartley is an HR director at large Comments are closed.
