Uber prius' trying their hardest to crash into you at every chance. Cyclists spitting at you if you dare to pass them within 25ft. Pedestrians walking in front of you at crossings then giving you dirty looks for daring to drive in the road. 15 million empty buses blocking every road and people riding boris bikes that haven't cycled since they were 8. Welcome to London curtesy of TFL.

CC zone feels more like a "trap" to catch all unsuspecting drivers

Always thought it was for 'congestion' as opposed to air pollution but either way a fair point :)

Durham has a congestion charge too. It's a much smaller zone, but a much smaller charge too. £2 or £3 from memory.

Why drive into London when the rest of the country pays so much to subsidise your public transport system?

Perfectly summed up driving in London- not to say the prying speed cameras waiting to "box" fine you!!

If I could , I would drive to London every single day! It's just that damn £11.50 CC charge keeping me at bay.
Travelling on the underground is a challenge. Do you really want to sit next to someone who stinks / plays loud music / smells of weed and that too in an overcrowded carriage ?

I would love to be able to walk a few hundred yards from my home to a bus stop/train station/underground train, jump on board and arrive a few hundred yards from my work. As it is I have to travel by car, on overly busy roads, often stuck behind school buses. Often there are agricultural vehicles on the road too. I then pass two schools and getting caught up in the school run seeing overweight kids getting dropped off by women still dressed in their nightwear. The congestion around schools is awful - and all of the kids who do not get the school bus don't get it because they are within walking distance of the school.
I then struggle to find a parking space at work. And I've added to the general pollution and congestion in getting here. But there is no practical alternative in this area. Relaxing on public transport sounds like bliss to me, though I do accept that not all public transport is relaxing when it's over-crowded. Let's swap lives? X)

That's a rip off. But I do think that transport charge in London are subsidised. You might be cheaper going into the outskirts of London and using the tube from there. Let me know if you want me to investigate options for you.

Well after reading all that my first thought was, set off earlier. :) Then you will miss the kids in the way and find it easier to park and have a less stressful day. While at first getting up earlier seems a drag after a few weeks you get used to it. Besides I eat breakfast after traveling rather than before so don't get up as early as you think. :)

CC gets suspended every year at xmas.

You can park free on single yellow lines and most "paid" parking spaces (double check the sign though!!!) on 25-27th December. (Only Bank holidays) and every day after 630pm.

But you know that the congestion charge zone is not guarded by posts and armed personnel and just enforced by CCTV cameras? :)

My costly train ride takes around 95mins to the City each way, don't think I would like to even think of options unless it saves me time ;)

I haven't seen one of those doorstep utility company cold callers for a while, but I imagine one of those would put it like this:

If you don't drive into the London CC zone during this period, you're basically losing £11.50 per day. That's £92, what are you crazy? If I dropped £92 on the floor and said you can have it, wouldn't you pick it up? Of course you would! And you're saying you don't want to collect an easy £92 by just driving into London, well, you're crazy if you don't. Just sign here... Hey why'd you slam the door in my face!
