Pres. Obama’s motorcade fined in London

London Mayor Boris Johnson has fined the United States 120 pounds in “congestion levies” from Obama’s motorcade during his state visit to Great Britain in May.

It’s the latest in a long-running feud between British officials and the U.S. embassy over previous fines.

The Standard reports that Obama’s personal armored Cadillac–nicknamed “The Beast”–first escaped a fine because congestion charge cameras were unable to record its license plate number.
