What a rip off, used the toll road on Friday night and got charged £11. I have gone to challenge it today as the lady in the toll booth didn't want to know at the time and they have said that they now use auto detection systems and as my Jeep exceeds 1.3m from the ground to above the bonnet then it gets charged as a HGV.

That will be the last time I use that road.

Other members have been told it is the axel height. Have been charged passenger car in one direction and HGV in the other on multiple occasions.

 

RIP OFF indeed.

Had it many times now, get receipt and send it to them with photo showing it's a class 4 vehicle and they will refund you [emoji106]

I was told the cameras measure where diameter to determine what the class of vehicle is, this was by the lady I argued with at the booth. Pay on card then send letter, they will not refund if you paid cash she told me!

Obviously you need bigger tyre's Tim!

That's me b******d, I paid cash. To be honest I am just going to put it down to a lesson learnt.
