London Mayor Ken Livingstone wants to make changes to the three-year-old congestion charging system, in order to tax the most polluting personal vehicles more than the cleaner ones. The congestion charge is currently £8 per car, regardless of what vehicle you are driving, each time you enter the center of London. The Mayor wants to lower the fee for cars producing very little carbon dioxide, while he proposes a fee of around £25 (about $45) for cars producing very high amounts of carbon dioxide. Anyone who has spent any time in London can attest to the ridiculous amount of traffic, combined with a love for high-end cars, including large luxury SUVs, exotic sports cars, and lots of luxury sedans.
