I have to say that the M6 toll to the north of Birmingham is worth paying £2 for, it really did cut time off my trip to the Lake District in both directions. Yes, it does feel like selling your soul to the devil, and you might also argue that it's really just a game of the Prisoner's Dilemma as to which 3-lane subset of the 6 lanes you pick for that leg of the journey. But I prefer to reflect that polluting the atmosphere whilst making progress is better than polluting the atmosphere whilst standing still.
