Motorists who evade London's congestion charge will have their vehicles seized under new powers proposed in a new Bill passing through the Commons.
The Transport for London Bill will give Transport for London (TfL) increased powers, including the power to seize vehicles that have not paid the congestion charge.
The Bill will provide TfL with increased powers to fine owners and remove their vehicles if they fail to pay any road charges within London.
It will also see a 'default' fare system introduced for certain black cab journeys.
However, the contentious Bill is being challenged by some MPs.
As a result, an Opposed Bill Committee was created to consider the Bill and the petitions against it.
The Committee sat last month, and its amendments to the Bill have just been published.
Despite the amendments TfL appears certain to have the increased powers it is looking for.
This means TfL officers will be allowed to examine, fit a clamp or remove a vehicle found in the congestion zone that has not paid the charge, even if it is parked on an off-street parking space.
Sophisticated number plate recognition cameras will be used to allow such vehicles to be identified.
