My smarter city will make Chelsea tractors less attractive

SUV parked up

London doesn’t need so many SUVs, Range Rovers and so on. These cars block the roads, are more dangerous to pedestrians… and use more carbon than smaller cars. In London we have experimented with lower road taxes in the form of “congestion charging” for greener cars - but its intriguing to see Richmond Council bring the idea to parking.

Generally people complain that parking fine collection companies in London are too aggressive in their approach, but I must admit I like the idea of low carbon preferred parking.

Thanks lowcarboneconomy for bringing this to my attention.
