4×4 drivers face huge charge rise

BBC News: “Vehicles causing the most pollution in central London are to face huge increases in the congestion charge, mayor Ken Livingstone has announced.
The daily charge for vehicles in carbon emissions band G – which includes 4x4s – is to rise from £8 to £25 from 2009.

In 2008, the charge will be removed for cars in Bands A and B which produce the lowest emissions, Mr Livingstone said.”

Nice one Ken.

How do we get these monstrosities off other roads as well? Personally I would favour a complete ban on 4x4s except for those who can demonstrate a clear need.
