Stockholm congestion tax and roads in general

         ·      · ·

Have been borrowing a couple of cars quite recently and I have just noticed that its cheaper to take a car from inside the city and pay the congestion charge than to pay the average day car parking fee, now I am not sure how that helps matters. Surely it would be better to leave the car at home and just use public transport until I need the car. I haven’t looked at how much a monthly permit is but I wonder whether it is cheaper than the 25Kr a day it costs in congestion charge at the times that I use it…

And speaking of driving, Sweden is fairly safe particularly when compared to England perhaps due in some part to not having so many cars per square kilometre but I am fairly stunned that most of the roads that I have driven on at night do not have Cat’s eyes. Of course these would be completely useless in the winter due to snow, but they have additional road markings then anyway, but I really miss them in normal driving.
