THE C CHARGE IS NOT WORKING
It is obviously expensive to run and adds yet more beaurocracy and complication to our already over complicated lives.
It does not generate enough money to cover the costs – thus the western zone and price rises.
It is unfair on those who live in the zone not least because they have to pay for builders, plumbers etc to come to do essential repairs.
If people were guaranteed to get a parking fine or have their vehicle towed away when they park illegally they would naturally be less inclined to drive into central London.
Less lorries would cause less congestion, less pollution and less damage to roads and street furniture and make central London pleasanter for pedestrians and cyclists
More varieties, cheaper and pleasanter public transport would attract more people to use it
Encouraging people to walk or cycle more would make them fitter, healthier and less prone to obesity.
