The Mayor of London is proposing a £2 daily levy to assist meet climate change objectives, so London motorists may have more than just a parking penalty to worry about shortly.

Sadiq Khan thinks that his current proposal, which would charge drivers a “small” daily cost of up to £2 for “all except the cleanest vehicles,” will inspire Londoners to become more physically active by walking, cycling, or taking public transportation to work.

Mr Khan has urged TfL to look at road pricing, which would tax cars based on distance travelled, time, and location. He is also considering imposing a fee on those from outside London who desire to visit the city.

Following last year’s flash floods, which flooded a number of tube stations and residences and was later followed by a heatwave, the mayor of London and his fellow Londoners were put at danger of catastrophic climate change.

Sadiq Khan expressed his thoughts as follows: “We have too often seen measures to tackle air pollution and the climate emergency delayed around the world because it’s viewed as being too hard or politically inconvenient, but I’m not willing to put off action, we have the ability to implement here in London”.

TfL has said that a public consultation would be held to determine if and which of the mayor’s suggestions may be implemented. Whatever changes are accepted, could be implemented by May 2024 in the capital.
