London was one of the first major cities in the world to implement congestion charging. The system works via a network of inter-linked camera utilising number plate recognition technology.

The system aims to reduce congestion in central London, but also raise funds for further investment in the city's transport infrastructure. By law, all profits must be re-invested.

As it charges road users for access, it has not been univerally popular amongst citizens.
