If you drive in London city centre between 7 a.m. and 6 p.m., you will have to pay the congestion charge, which in June 2010 stood at £8 (around U.S. £7). Although there are a number of different ways to pay, you should keep a record of your vehicle’s number plate and the date or dates for which you owe the payment.
