    Went over it today to Liverpool Airport. Tried to pay 4 times online and it wouldn't complete. Had to phone to sort as was flying out tonight - not ideal!! Road is good though.

    A mate of mine who's lived in London for years came up and went to see an old mate in Liverpool, got back to London
    with a fine through his letterbox. He had no idea where he was going route wise, he merely followed the signs and went over
    the bridge, he hadn't got a clue about bridges, tolls etc; I've also tried to pay on line and not succeeded, phoning up seems the only
    way. It's a fucking ridiculous system that will ensnare hundreds, if not thousands of drivers, plus I wouldn't be surprised
    if they've done it like this deliberately.
    Like you, I won't now use Liverpool airport, I'll travel via Warrington, to get over the water, they can get to fuck.

    You're right. It's a £100 fine just for stopping your car on any of Liverpool airport's land!
    As regards the bridge, this is the first time that the British public will be subjected to a toll on a previously built, untolled route. I have signed an online petition that now has to be heard, and I have written to my MP. It needs everyone to stop this or it could be applied to any route. We already pay for huge fuel duty and road fund license!

    No, no, you don’t understand. It’s a law of the land that you must use the bridge.

    And 28 non tolled crossings over the Thames. Four crossings over the Mersey, all tolled.
