ICE vehicles to be charged £130 for entering seven busy London streets

Another blow for London’s drivers of petrol and diesel cars; seven of the busiest and most polluted streets in the boroughs of Hackney and Islington will be charging drivers of ICE vehicles £130.00 to enter the selected zones during morning and evening peak times.

This new measure, reported in The Times, will be policed by cameras equipped with number plate recognition. This is a not insignificant detail; ANPR technology will be crucial in helping governments replace fuel duty with other forms of driving tax as the nation’s cars turn electric. Per mile charging will become the norm and charges can easily be priced according to traffic levels if the cameras are already in place to enforce pollution controls.

In the meantime, EV drivers in these busy parts of London will enjoy empty streets and easy parking. It’s a brave, or foolish person who buys a petrol or diesel car in London from now on.
