Price 'em off the trains, price 'em off the roads

Following recent news of train fare hikes way above inflation, we now get the news that road pricing is very much on the agenda.
I give up. Pricing motorists out of their cars is a noble aim if we're ever to get on top of the shite that we as a population pump into the air. It will not work if there is no viable alternative. I've said this so often I'm getting fecked off with it. So if at the same time as you plan to bring in road pricing you are also pricing people off the rails, how do you expect it to be anything other than a revenue -generating exercise?
