Editorial: M50 toll plans will hit us all

Public anger over the proposed extra tolls on the M50 is growing and quite rightly. The extra costs will impact severely on motorists, but will also, ultimately, hit every consumer.

Additional costs for transport vehicles will undoubtedly increase the price of the goods being carried.

Motorists, as taxpayers, will find themselves paying twice but everyone else will also have to pay the knock-on hike in the cost of everyday consumer goods.
