Road pricing: lessons from London
Abstract"This paper assesses the original London Congestion Charging Scheme (LCCS) and its impacts, and it simulates the proposed extension which will include most of Kensington and Chelsea. It also touches upon the political economy of the congestion charge and the increase of the charge from �5 to �8 per day. The possibility of transferring the experience to Paris, Rome and New York is also discussed." Copyright CEPR, CES, MSH, 2006.
