Sadiq Khan’s ULEZ expansion generated an extra £5.3m in its first week of operation.
Expanding the boundary from inner London to cover the complete Greater London area meant more than 425,000 cars were penalised in the first week.
Mr Khan is accused of misleading the public about ULEZ benefits.

Gareth Johnson, MP for Dartford, is proposing legislation that, if passed, would prevent ‘Transport for London’ from amending boundaries of clear air zones without ministerial permission.
Mr Johnson claims the Ulez expansion is a ‘cruel taxation’.
He says those on low incomes who cannot buy a newer compliant car are unfairly subjected to a ‘stealth tax’.
Money is taken from the poor and paid to the rich.
It not only affects the poor; the NHS will be forced to spend £65 million to make hundreds of ambulances compliant.
Additionally, and not all that surprising, a large number of people are happy to take the law into their own hands.
987 records of cameras being vandalised or stolen between April and October this year.
The Met has committed considerable resources to deal with this new and expensive crime.
To date, the ‘considerable resources’ haven’t had much success.
Five arrested, and Two charged!
