Mercedes Classe R restyling

2011 New Mercedes R-Class, Rather than squeezing people with initiatives such as the Congestion Charge (which only serve to make old cars in perfect working order, though no longer new) that you decide to put the "congestion taxes" based on the size of cars.
The historic centers of Italian cities have not adapted to behemoths like the ones you see around now. Yet they are full of SUVs driven by people who use them to fetch the newspaper or take their children to school just because you "can". You start to beat these people tax rewards to those who, instead, buy compact cars, under 4 meters, much more suited to the urban fabric of our cities.Indirectly, it would be a "pleasure" to the environment.
