You\'re so right, if cars (not to mention lorries and buses) were greener, then most of the problem would be solved! I can totally understand rejecting public transport in it\'s present state, Ken\'ll be so so wrong to put in the charge without radically improving public transport first.
But, don\'t forget if you convert you\'re car to LPG (not to be confused with electric) you will be exempt from Congestion charge, will save money (at half the price of unleaded, the cost of conversion will pay for itself in a few months) and will not notice much difference in performance (or do you drive a Lotus?), esp, since apparently the average speed is now under 10mph!), and we can all breathe that little bit easier (sigh!)
There are quite a few LPG gas stations in south london, so it really is the ideal solution, - shame the gov\'t don\'t publicise this a bit more (something to do with back-handers from enron, possibly! ahem)
just a thought, please don\'t get upset!... ; )
