Instead of emission charge it will be a proper congestion charge.
I wonder how many private cars are out of London commuters not using other transport which make the numbers up.
Prices will also go up for customers of all stock in trade
Yes @standardbearer it would be interesting to know what Londoners think of these charges
Its true that the air in London is dangerous and school children and little kids with their lives in front of them are being affected.
Car commuters choose to commute instead of the expensive , dangerously overcrowded unreliable trains.
Remember the good old government advising us all to buy diesel to keep co2 emissions down caused by petrol cars.
If we all went electric the charge would be for conjestion not emissions.
But who knows that may bring up some problems later.
The main point is the tax will not cease even with electric in the end because they need to keep taking your money.
