American President Barack Obama Dodges Congestion Charge

The London Congestion charge has apparently handed the most powerful man in the world a £120 fine for not paying the £10 congestion fee.

The London Congestion charge has apparently handed the most powerful man in the world a £120 fine for not paying the £10 congestion fee. The fine is from when President Obama visited the capital in May at the start of the year.

The President was travelling with a fleet of vehicles but ANPR cameras could only pick out a single number plate due to the motorcade travelling so close together. Although Transport for London probably had some issues notifying the president as he went back to the USA on his private jet not long after.

Apparently though this is just tip of the iceberg as the President’s £120 fine is nothing compared to the £5m congestion charge bill the US Embassy has been running up for a number of years in the capital.
