Scrap Toll Roads
Scrap toll roads in Ireland.
These projects have already paid for themselves multiple times over. It is a needless cost in the middle of a cost of living crisis.
Why is this important?
Tolls are a further tax on people except the money goes directly to private companies instead of back into the State.
Tolls are not large employers and have automated most of their staff. Roads can be maintained through government funds in the same way that every other road in the country is. Increasing tolls in the middle of a cost of living crisis when they are already posting record profits is just extortion.
We don't need them and they're exploiting us. Get rid of them.
