Tax-deductible congestion zone charges slammed

Published onsdag 7 februari 2007 kl 12.22

Several organisations which campaigned for a permanent congestion charge for central Stockholm are criticising the project leader’s suggestion that the costs should be tax-deductible for motorists driving to and from work.

The charge is going to be re-introduced in July after average rush hour traffic dropped by 22 per cent during a trial last year.

The Swedish Society for Nature Conservation is one of the groups condemning the tax-deduction idea, saying if the tolls were cheaper for some it would lead to less of a reduction in traffic and fewer passengers using public transport instead.
