Did that headline make you sit up?

However it is not our Highland council but one in the USA see https://www.chicagotribune.com/subur...q5i-story.html

Still is it an idea worth looking at to pay for road repairs in the UK?

Undoubtedly the years of austerity have cut budgets whether local council roads or the main roads dealt with by Transport Scotland. Unless the fact of less travel due to Covid 19 begins to make a difference there is still a long standing issue.

Any other ideas out there for our roads?
