Road pricing will be one solution they should consider. Again a Norweigan example (we have family connections) but road pricing there means you pay depending upon your use and the amount you pollute. So 20,000 miles a year in a diesel will cost much more than 5000 in an EV. Every car is tagged with a small gadget in the windscreen and you are billed monthly. Seems like a simple and fair system for recovering lost government finances that recognises the environmental impact as well.
