The London City Hall is preparing to declare war on traffic jams to make the British capital the most comfortable place to live in. The mayor of London, Sadik Khan, has already stated that the program will be based on a ban on car parking and encouragement of other forms of movement around the city. By 2041, about 80% of all passages in London will be carried out either by public transport or by bicycles. Currently, only 64% of all passages in the capital are carried out in such ways.
To force the British to abandon the use of personal transport, the city authorities are planning to introduce into their transport strategy the point about an even larger increase in fare in the capital. Outside experts support the initiative of the London City Hall, but emphasize that if the city authorities actively implement all of the above points of their strategy, they may face social resistance, as most Londoners are already dissatisfied with the authorities' intention to limit their opportunities while moving around the city.
