July 21, 2008
Posted in Nationla Numbers News — Written by Nationla Numbers

It was Alistair’s birthday yesterday. Alistair – more commonly known as Ali – is a top-class Nationla Numbers private number plate salesperson, and although he’s not in the office today, everybody at Nationla Numbers would like to wish him a very happy birthday for yesterday.

Ali likes his cars fast.

He also likes donuts in his cars, but not the sugar coated variety!

He used to have a Vauxhall Corsa but more recently has been burning around in a 16v Ford Fiesta Zetec, complete with phat ICE and in-car lighting!

So happy birthday Ali! Here’s to many more years of car donuts!


Boris Shuns Vehicle Congestion Charge Increase

London Mayor Boris Johnson scraps Congestion Charge increaseLondon mayor Boris Johnson has stayed true to his pre-mayoral word by not increasing the London congestion charge for polluting large and 4×4 vehicles.

Previous mayor Ken Livingstone proposed the charge be raised from the acceptable figure of lb8 for vehicles emitting more than 225g of carbon dioxide per kilometre, and for vehicles registered before March 2001 with engines larger than 3,000cc, to a mind-blowing lb25, from October.

However Boris ditched the plans, saying: “I am delighted that we have been able to scrap the lb25 charge, which would have hit families and small businesses hardest”. He added: “I believe the proposal would actually have made congestion worse by allowing thousands of small cars in for free.”

Boris was prompted to avoid the increase on the power of a legal challenge from car manufacturer Porsche, who sought a judicial review of the proposal after unearthing research from King’s College in London.

The academic research proposed that the new charge could actually increase CO2 emissions because people would theoretically drive a greater distance to avoid the congestion charge zone.

Porsche Managing director Andy Goff said: “Porsche is proud to have played a decisive role in striking down such a blatantly political tax increase targeting motorists.”
