London’s congestion charging scheme is the largest and most complex ever implemented. This article describes the program in detail, noting that 691 fixed cameras are spread over 200 sites which link to the hub site in London. It describes how images are captured and retained, how customers pay, how payments are handled, and what happens when congestion charge payments are not received. The article also describes how the system was developed and delivered, the type of software that is used, and current facts and figures. The success of the program is measured in terms of faster journey times, lower traffic volumes and reduction of congestion (by 30 percent) in the zone.
