Driving

I can’t be the only one that has noticed that roadworks seem to have sprung up everywhere in Central London. Just the other day it took me over an hour to get from Camden to Soho, a distance of not even 3 miles. Yesterday I ran into roadworks around Seymour Place, then Victoria, Edgeware Road. I am serious considering taking public transport, something that I have managed to avoid for almost 20 years. Add to this the fact that it cost £51 the last time I filled up my car and the congestion charge is £8 a day and I think Ken Livingstone may just have converted me to buy an Oyster card.

On the other hand I may convert to the new G-Whiz, congestion, tax and parking free electric cars.

    I can’t even begin to imagine how it is possible to live in London and not take public transport!
