A Plan To Help Small Large Businesses!

Manchester’s congestion charging proposal is unlikely to be greeted with delight by small businesses, who are precisely the ones most feeling the high fuel costs pinch at the moment:
Motorcyclists and disabled drivers will be exempt from Manchester's congestion charge - but city delivery drivers could pay up to £10 a day.

Although drivers of commercial vehicles pay the same rates as cars, they face higher charges if they cross the charging ring repeatedly.

Commercial drivers with multi-drop deliveries could have faced the prospect of racking up huge fees by repeatedly crossing the inner ring, but AGMA says their charge will be capped at £10.
Got to keep little grocers like Tesco, Sainsbury and Asda happy!
