It has nothing to do with emissions. Its a tax to raise money.
I could have a 20 year old car spewing out 100 x more crap than a new car but as long as I pay mayor khant 12.50p. He will invite me in, no questions.
If he said £100 a day for that vehicle then I would agree its for the right reasons.
As for kids and breathing issues, as a poster highlighted the buggy 2 ft from the ground sucking on an exhaust is a lot different to the silver Cross style of yesteryear.
Maybe parents and convenience need to be looked at to start to change the effect on kids.

Like banning taking your kids to school by car.

Currently, if you live inside the zone and have a diesel churning out nasty emissions, you donít need to pay the charge. If you go out of the zone and come back in, then you do have to pay. They only have cameras on the outer entrance points, not inside.
These will be added next year 750 of them.

Charges like these always make me laugh, everyone knows that they start with the thin edge of the wedge ( oh its a couple percent / a few pounds a day etc etc etc) from then onwards the only way that charge is going is up .........
