Car share lanes coming

Car share lanes coming
Solo motorists driving in proposed car share lanes could land fines of up to £100, according to the Department for Transport.

A network of car sharing lanes could be introduced across 500 miles of key routes, with cameras monitoring compliance with the policy of having passengers to use the lanes, reports the Sunday Express.

Transport minister Paul Clark has also announced plans to introduce tolls on motorway lanes or the hard shoulder in order to ease congestion.

Speaking to a conference of road-pricing experts he said that initial trials into road pricing could begin next year.

He did not rule out that heavy emitting cars would face higher road charging costs.

"Options are open to us," he said.

"There's a whole range of things going on across the globe aimed at meeting congestion and emissions policy."

Meanwhile American singer Neil Young has taken steps to reduce his carbon emissions by converting his 2.5 tonne nine-mile-per-gallon Lincoln Continental into a low-emissions vehicle.
