Emissions-related congestion charging – London First response

n response to an expected announcement today from the Mayor on an Emissions-Related Congestion Charge, London First, who were advocates of the original congestion charging scheme, were unequivocal.  A spokesman said:

“This is just daft – we know this is election year, but encouraging gridlock in the centre of London is no vote winner.  Band A and B cars don’t reduce CO2, they add to it. And they add to congestion which drives up CO2 emissions from the vehicles stuck in the queue behind them. The Mayor’s policy on congestion is in tatters.”
