Letter: Off the road

Click to follow
Sir: John Stewart of the Lambeth Public Transport Group suggests that poor people won't be disadvantaged by congestion charging and general measures to make the motorist pay more (letter, 13 December).

Many poor people do own cars and rely on them as I do. I suffer from a long-term illness that means I have never been able to work and I rely on state benefits. I also rely totally on my car to get me around. I can only just about afford to run my car now and I will struggle to replace it when it expires. Does Mr Stewart really want confine me and people like me to their homes?
