The Road Haulage Association has responded to the Transport for London announcement that fines for drivers failing to pay the London Congestion Charge will increase from £130 to £160.

The RHA says that the rise is “completely unjustified and is more than just a tax on Londoners”.

TfL has also confirmed that it expects all Penalty Charge Notices, including those for illegal parking, driving in bus lanes and stopping in a yellow-box junction, to rise to £160 later in 2018, subject to a review by the Secretary of State.

The RHA says: “We believe that the Mayor now needs to raise money to pay for his public transport fare freeze and other spending, and he is choosing to take money from the people and businesses of London who need use motor vehicles to move around the city.”
