Hi Chaps.

How the dickens did we get from a post about the new T Charge to me defending London Town to pics of cats followed by a pic of a dog beside a top of the range zimmer frame ending up with a joke from Andrew about it all being a CATastrophe :)

I was a 'whisker' away from passing out from the laughter :lol: :lol:

I have said it before and will say it again this is why I love this forum. Brilliant serious advice on tap 24/7 and a bunch of folk willing to have a laugh too :applaud:

So after cat then zimmer I read on line that the T charge will start on the 23rd October 2017 in London ( where not to sure )

But you can put your reg number in here to find out if you have to pay every day . I have put my reg in and I will have to pay £10 a day to drive the Capri in London .

What I don’t get is as I go up to my in laws house ( welling kent A2 ) I see low emission sign around the bkackfen junction .
So I wonder if I will have to pay to take the car up there ?

Here’s the web site to check your cars https://tfl.gov.uk/modes/driving/emissi ... ge-checker

So I am not a happy bunny having to pay for something to visit family . But I hope Iam wrong .

The T charge and proposed ULEZ are seperate from the existing LEZ, which affects only commercial vehicles.

Plus £11.50 for the congestion charge too Jason....total of £21.50 mate....but only if you drive through central London between 0700-1800 mon-fri. Outside these times there is no charge. Weekends also no charge.

The T Charge operates in the same area as the Congestion charge Jason. Have a look at the underground map and its everywhere in Zone 1 that these charges apply mate :)

I aint losing any sleep over this myself as I dont see a time I will 'need' to drive into Central London during the day mon-fri. I did work in Victoria right beside Buckingham Palace for16yrs then over in Green Park opposite The Ritz Hotel for 3yrs but the thought of driving in never crossed my mind....much better to squash in on the underground tube instead....lovely.... :lol:

All the best mate

Yes your right Nick , that’s cleared that up . And I never new zone 1 on the tube was the congestion charge you learn something everyday .

So I can’t get out of going to see the mother in law will have to think of another excuse.

Actually these days it stops at Park Lane, so as to not upset the residents of Kensington & Chelsea... so it's less than zone 1!
