Silly, silly, silly. Ken needs to be ousted.Deluded or comical Times Online commenter said:I'd extend it to cover the entire area within the M25 and raise it to Â£25 a day.
I'ts the only way to be fair to the children growing up there.

They have to raise the money for the Olympics somehow.
He can't extend it to the M25 because his remit doesn't extend to the M25. I live within the motroway but outside the GLA
He is trying to have his domain increased from the gla to the whole of London!!!
The whole purpose of the congestion charge has been bought up on the PM web site
Plus others on the subject
The petition asks why its based on Co2, in the first place as it is a charge on the number of vehicles not how much they pollute. He is slowly changing the traffic lights to impede drivers, increase co2 emissions and charge more.
They have recently changed the traffic light sequence on the A41 coming out of london, on the stretch just before Brent cross, this used to have a couple of minutes delay but is now 10-15.
How can he get away with this?????
Ken is only out to penalise the driver, car,motor bike van or truck. Box junction fines of £60, bus lane fines £60(unless you pay after 14 days then £120) anywhere else in the county £30 for bus lane and nothing unless you get caught by a copper for box junctions(A40 heading out of oxford towards Eynsham everybody blocks this one)
Maybe he had a bad experience as a kid!!!!!!
Just thought, why don't all the goverment agencies that use range rovers/Jaguars/Bentleys and of course Mercs, swap to low CO2 versions of these cars to make a statement that they are committed to lower CO2 emissions. I guess because they can't get all their kit in to something smaller they won't which is why people have this type of car in the first place.
