Get a new bike from $50 per week

Saving the planet one tax at a time

By johnboy 19 October 2009 44

The ABC informs us that the Chiefly Stanhope is quite keen on adding a toll to your daily commute:

Mr Stanhope says a congestion charge is worth considering.

“I would be interested in any conversation around what we can do to encourage people to use public transport,” he said.

You could try running decent weekend services so we don’t need to run a car anyway you blockhead.


What’s Your opinion?

That may be, but why do they defend Stanhopes blantantly ridiculous ideas? Closing Schools? Congestion Tax? These kind of things should never be supported by Canberra residents. If he thinks Canberra is congested then maybe he shouldn’t have stinged on the GDE.

Hows this going to help WORKING FAMILIES that have to drop there children of at school on the way to work????????????????????????????????????????? Seeing that it was his Government that closed a heap of Schools down.

At the moment trying to do business in Civic is a pain because there is no short term parking. So Solicitors, and Accountants move their Offices to Fyshwick so people can use there services!!!! MAKING THE CARBON FOOTPRINT EVEN BIGGER because you have to drive out there to do business. Oh then there is the Offices at the Airport, Don,t get me STARTED.

Town planning while on drugs. How else did we end up with this mess.

Then theres Government offices in satellite cities Belco, Woden, and Tugger. Try living on the north side and work in Tugger, then get a promotion to a job at the airport. Then we should all use public transport!! or ride a bike 60km round trip every day,

Oh whoops forgot about the kids and getting them to school too.

Ha! “Working Families”. Pretty sure they are a myth. Nice rant!

“Youami” From the Newtown in Sydney actually, Campbell St had 12 buses and 5 trains every 1/2 hour to choose from. Move back there tomorrow if I could afford to. And my SUV took up 2 parking spots too.
