London’s residents support congestion charging
by David Masters
March 26, 2008
A new poll has found that almost two-thirds of those living in London back Mayor Livingstone’s decision to increase the congestion charge for high-polluting vehicles.
A survey of over 1,000 Londoners was carried out by IPSOS-MORI, asking respondents what they thought of the new £25 per day charge for the most heavily polluting vehicles. 61% said that they are in favour of the new charge.
Only 29% of those polled disagreed with the charge, which comes into effect from October this year.
65% of respondents said that congestion charging is good for London, whilst the vast majority of those polled said that they agree with the decision to allow eco-friendly vehicles free access to the capital.
