Increasing the penalty charge
If a driver who has driven through the Congestion Charging Zone has not paid the daily charge by midnight on the next charging day, they could receive a Penalty Charge Notice.
TfL proposes to increase the penalty charge from £120 to £130. This would bring the penalty charge in line with other motoring penalty charges across London. This is only the third increase to the penalty charge since the Congestion Charge was introduced in 2003.
From 29 April 2013, the penalty charge would be £130, reduced to £65 if paid within 14 days and increased to £195 if not paid within 28 days.
