I thought you guys might find this one interesting:

Foreign drivers are avoiding the London congestion charge

Thousands of drivers from outside the UK are not paying London's congestion charge, the BBC has learnt.

Transport for London (TfL) is chasing more than 88,000 foreign drivers who have left owing £8.8m in unpaid bills since January last year.

So far only 25,000 of them have been identified and just £500,000 collected.

TfL said lack of a Europe-wide agreement on traffic fines meant UK local authorities had "great difficulty" tracing foreign drivers.
The lack of a common arrangement works both ways - that's why my wife can get flashed by French speed cameras and not get fined. As for Ken Livingstone not getting in more money - well, I should care...
