Itchen bridgeAfter complaints of long lines at the toll booth, and a lobbying effort by a local motorcycle association, councillors in Southampton, England decided to give bikers free passage over the Itchen Bridge.

Long lines of vehicles at the toll booth grew as bikers had to stop their bikes, put them in neutral, pull their glove off, dig into their pockets, pay the toll, put their glove back on, get back in gear, and get going...

So to remedy that problem, they gave motorcycles free access...
It follows lobbying by the Southampton Motorcycle Action Group, which said that it would help end queues of waiting cars.
The move will result in a net loss of £20,000 each year for the city.

According to comments posted on the city's daily newspaper, the decision is not being well received by cagers.
