No more paying

Quite controversial a roadtax was introduced to Stockholm from the first of january until the last day of july. Between 07.30 and 18.29 you had to pay a fee to get into Stockholms inner city. Payment was done at any Seven Eleven after your registrationlicence had been scanned.

This has been quite controversial since Stockholmers voted no to introduce roadtaxes, yet they did. With a new election coming in september (general elections even on national levels here) the roadtaxquestion is of course a very discussed question, but at the same time a lot of people have turned in opinion since it´s been proven that the traffic going through Stockholm has eased up during the period.

The picture? Well, it shows workers taking down signs on the last of july and I took the liberty of copying a picture from the Roadinspectors homepage. The photographer is called Mikael Ullén
