Obama fined in UK for motorcade

LONDON (HOST TV/CNN) - Even the President of the United States is not exempt from traffic fines in London.

During a visit in May, President Barack Obama failed to pay the European city's $16 congestion fee for his limo, nicknamed the "Beast."

So, London has slapped Obama with a $200 fine.

The city of London levies the congestion charge to try and keep the streets clear during the work week.
