60% of all lethal car NOx in London is emitted by blackcabs.
Blackcabs are up to 30 times more polluting than equivalent private cars!
As even ambulances have to pay the mayor’s pollution charge, then really toxic black cabs should not be exempted from paying it.
They are a public health emergency on our streets.
40% of all cars in central London are blackcabs. Yet they only carry 1% of all trips in London.
They are the most inefficient use of precious road-space.
Empty London blackcabs drive 230 million miles every year, looking for paying customers.
Emergency vehicles and people trying to get to work, school & shops are blocked daily by black cab jams, yet the mayor allows cabbies to drive empty in bus lanes for free.
The Mayor must impose congestion and pollution charges on London’s largest source of vehicular pollution and congestion.
New York has imposed a congestion charge on cab-users rather than cabbies and that is what we want – a £5 per trip congestion charge for all cab-users.
Blackcab pollution is carcinogenic and damages the lungs of our kids for life. Even the new Electric Cabs emit 70% of the particulates of non-electric cabs.
Blackcabs are not public-transport. They are expensive privately chauffeured vehicles for hire.
For the sake of the lives of those using buses, walking and cycling, we need to radically reduce unnecessary blackcab usage in London. We need cleaner and far fewer cabs.
Those with disabilities would be exempted from the cabuser congestion charge, which we also want applied to minicab users.
