congestion charging

From the BBC website's Talking Point.

"At the end of my road is a big red 'C' marking the start of the congestion charge area. I own both a car and a bicycle. I know that this five pound a day will stop me driving. I will become healthier, wealthier and will get to places twice as fast by cycling. I just needed the push as like most motorists, I am a lazy git."

My own journey into work today (two buses - the recently introduced 476 route [Stef's house - Euston], then route 18 [Euston - Paddington]) was noticeably quieter. In fact, it seemed as if the whole thing is going to be an absolutely gigantic success. Hurrah!
