I know I shouldn't on a for sale thread, but.....I see Khan is due to rake in three quarters of a billion pounds (BBC speak) a year on this.

It ends when we accept that personally owned mobility, and our extravagant usage of it, was never sustainable. That will take road pricing, where you pay directly for every Km you travel. But introducing it now would be political suicide, so it will take an apocalyptic event to bring it about. Hopefully that's at least 25 years away.

And somewhere far away. China would be preferable.

I believe it's 100 for HGV's and buses. If I owned a fleet of lorries, I'd just be telling the good people of London that they could fickin starve, and to call the mayor if the were worried.

 Only pay the Khan tax,if vehicle doesn't meet requirements, don't confuse ULEZ with congestion charge.  Also now Commercial vehicles need to be fitted with n/s camera, and auidable turn left indicating.

I wondered why that Grundon's lorry that comes through our nice quiet Northamptonshire hamlet has to announce to me and my dog that it is turning left at 6.30 every morning.  It must really annoy the people that don't want to get up early. I'd rather listen to the sound of a B1B passing overhead any day!
