There’s been a glitch in the Matrix. Thanks London Congestion Charging…


There has been a glitch in the London Congestion Charging system.  Despite the fact that I have paid my resident discount until September 2010 it seems that their systems are not registering my license plate properly as having paid.  I would like to point out that my license plate is correctly registered, so who knows what the hell their problem is.

I came back from holiday to find 10 separate penalty charges (in addition to the 6 that were cancelled previously) which would total £600 or if not responded to within 14 days £1200.  Every penalty charge notice contains 4 pieces of paper and has to be snail mailed to me.  What a total waste.

Technology.  You gotta love it.
