Wrong on two counts.
I cycle in London every week and believe me it is no longer traffic
choked since congestion charging was introduced. I cycle about three
miles each way across central London from Kings Cross to Waterloo rail
stations and meet relatively few motor vehicles other than taxis and
buses and no traffic queues on the way.
There are still plenty of double decker buses as well - its just the
ageing Routemaster ones that have been phased out - and about time too
as their diesel engines were getting pretty smokey and access for
wheelchair users really bad.
