President Obama owes traffic authorities in London around $200 after his limosinue was slapped with a fine.

The president visited London in May and his motorcade caused a bit of a traffic congestion, which comes with a fee of $16 if the vehicle is driven downtown.

The U.S. Embassy in London claims diplomatic rules exempt Obama's motorcade from the fines.

American diplomats are said to owe London traffic authorities more than eight million pounds, or around $13 million, in unpaid congestion fees and fines.
