Since 2003, London, England has had a congestion charge for drivers who want to go into the central part of the city. Drivers have to £8 per day to drive in the area, in an attempt to discourage cars from coming into Central London, and use public transport instead. AutoExpress is reporting that the congestion charges could now be expanded to other areas. Ten local councils have received £9million from the government to put conduct feasibility studies and put together plans for implementing congestion charges. Later this year the government will select one area for a test program starting in 2008, eventually leading to a nationwide program from 2010 onwards.
