Question for the Brits among us
My DH and I were watching Top Gear last night and Jeremy was driving a 26 mile course through London in a competition with a guy who was running it to see who would get to the finish first due to the congestion in London during rush hour. He got to a certain section of town and had to stop to buy "congestion pricing". What is that? I've heard of Mayor Bloomberg (in NYC) trying to institute this same thing, but we don't understand why he had to stop upon entering this section of town to immediately purchase this. If someone would explain that would be great.

Also, they had a few shots of a very complicated looking traffic light set up. Holy Moley!! I don't think I could drive in the UK!
