London Mayor’s new tax proposal for car drivers

The Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, is proposing a ‘clean air’ tax of £2 a day on all vehicles in the capital, with the exception of vehicles running on ‘the cleanest fuels’.

A new report prepared by the Metropolitan Municipality was published yesterday in order to reach the 2030 net zero emission target that London has set for itself.

According to the report’s findings, vehicle traffic in the capital needs to decrease by 27 percent over the next eight years to reach this target.

The report also suggests that cars are used for very short distances in London, with one-third of those distances being walked in 25 minutes and two-thirds cycling in less than 20 minutes.

Khan says the clean air tax is designed to encourage people to take public transport, walk, and use bicycles and electric vehicles, while in the long run a system where drivers can pay per mile should be in place.
