Re: Congestion charge
I have to say, that my dad did write to them a couple of weeks ago, and they still refuse to waive the fine, even though it is a genuine mistake. He could ill afford the petrol for the trip there and back (he only has a basic pension), but to get fined just added insult to injury. We even contacted the police, when he didn't get home on time.
Ah well, if you are a foreigner, you will never have to pay any kind of fine in this country. I find myself becoming increasingly bad tempered and intolerant.
