  1. Fortunately, smog as originally experienced is not a problem in London since the banning of domestic coal fires. However, vehicle exhaust, especially from diesel engines, is a major pollution hazard. It is noticeable that many London drivers have now turned to electric vehicles – these are not subject to the congestion charge that other drivers must pay.
