London (ANI): American actress Uma Thurman, who recently moved to Britain, has got herself a scooter to beat London's heavy traffic. The 38-year-old actress, who recently moved to London with her fiance Arpad 'Arki' Busson, has bought a bright green Vespa to beat the city's traffic congestion - exempting her from paying the city centre's rising congestion toll.
"She can avoid the congestion charge and park easily with her new scooter. She drives Arki around on it all the time," the Daily Express quoted a source, as saying.
The Kill Bill star's neighbours have even given her a new name 'Vrooma Uma.' "The neighbours call her Vrooma Uma because she is always scooting around the area," the source added.
