IPLOMATS RACK UP £70M IN CONGESTION CHARGE FINES
Diplomats in London have racked up £70million in unpaid congestion charge fines.
Over the past ten years foreign embassies have accumulated more than 600,000 penalty charge notices after refusing to pay the charge, Transport for
London said in May.
Embassies now owe £70,068,175 - with the US topping the list. Over the past ten years, America has picked up 66,372 penalty charge notices totalling
The charge, which brings in around £110million a year, costs £10 and is active in certain areas of London from 7am to 6pm on weekdays.
It was claimed in 2011 that London Mayor Boris Johnson asked US President Barack Obama for a £5million cheque for unpaid congestion charge fines, but
the US ambassador intervened before Mr Obama could answer.
