London congestion charge starts well
- Despite all the warnings and complaints, the first day of congestion
charging in London has got off to a good start. Traffic in central
London has been reduced by 25%. Let's hope it continues this way, and
that other cities follow London's example.
- Hear hear! I suspect a lot of disappointed people ... but there's many a
slip between cup and lip. I so hope this will work for the reasons you give.
It will be a great turning point on road pricing forcing car drivers to pay
their share of the damage they do.
