Rural road rage


I do not agree with Derek Bissel's suggestion that effectively means affluent countryside dwellers commuting in fuel-guzzling 4x4s should be subsidised by 'us' townies.

I am all for cheap public transport, particularly for the less well off (Letters last week).

Affluent countryside home owners who regularly drive into towns/cities and want to park their cars, should pay quadruple car parking charges to redress the problems of the environmental damage their daily jaunts cause.

Why should townies have to put up with large parking areas for the benefit of people, who are responsible for the high property prices unaffordable by the original, less well paid indigenous countyside population.
