Like in London, Singapore, Oslo and Bergen, drivers in Stockholm, the Swedish capital have been charged a few Euros to drive through the centre of town between 6.30 am and 6.30 pm. 7 months later, the following can be noticed: the number of cars in the centre of town has gone down by 20 %, as have traffic jams and accidents ; polluting greenhouse gas emissions in this area on the scale of 800 000 inhabitants have gone down by 14 %. Following this experience, 53 % of inhabitants voted by referendum for this urban toll to be permanently implemented from August 1st 2007.
