Simple fact is that there are too many cars on the UK roads...at peak times that becomes critical mass

I now drive 46 miles each way to work which 20 years ago would have been out of the ordinary ..now its not unusual.
15 years ago I used to ride by bike 17 miles each way to work..now I wouldn't dare risk it.
I don't have any choice to use public transport unless i set off the night before...then I can't get home.

I'm not saying road pricing will help or is the right solution

But I do know that I did work in London near old street tube when the congestion charging started.
one week crossing the road took a good 5 minutes
Next week 15 seconds.
