Further to a recent thread. BBC London News had a report on those weird banks of cameras on Borough High Street
and Tooley street.
They said that there are 500 volunteeer testers who have a chip affixed to their car. The white box thingies register that a given car is below. So they can track exactly how long a car has been inside the zone.
This paves the way for a charge to be based on the type of car, time of day, miles driven etc. They say the system is nearly 100% succesful.
They still look bloody ugly though!
