    Fantastic news

    https://www.standard.co.uk/news/lond...s-b935139.html

    Almost 140,000 motorists a day will soon have to pay to drive in the London suburbs as Sadiq Khan today pressed ahead with an expansion of the ultra-low emission zone.


    The first signs warning drivers that the Ulez will be expanded from central London to the boundaries of the North and South Circular roads on October 25 were seen today.


    Drivers of cars and vans, and motorbike riders, will pay £12.50 a day if their vehicle breaches the exhaust emissions rules. A £100 fee will be levied on non-compliant lorries and buses.


    Clean air coming to all of England quite soon hopefully.

      He could've easily created a policy to ban high polluting vehicles over 3 years which would've had the same affect on creating a cleaner environment over that period. Instead he uses environment argument to justify a blatant tax grab.

        Something else to remember. Later this year hybrid cars will no longer be exempt from the London congestion charge..cleaner vehicle discount (CVD):

        From October 25, 2021, to December 24, 2025, only pure electric vehicles will be eligible for the CVD. All other vehicles, regardless of their emissions status, will need to pay the congestion charge, unless they are registered for another discount or have an exemption.

        Sadiq Khan, Mayor of London, said: “Toxic air pollution in London is a major public health crisis that is stunting the lung development of our children and leads to thousands of premature deaths and increases the risk of asthma and dementia.
        Tory scum want children to die horrible deaths from toxic vehicle fumes.

              Innerestingly, I checked my car against the ULEZ rulez a while back and it would seem that an 04 350z is exempt from the fee

                So, what happens to the price of food in this area? I don't think it's delivered by organic free-range fairies.

                  We have had years of warning about this and some people were able to use discounts to get new vehicles whether they were for individual use or commercial use.

                    He legally cannot stop giving out mini-cab licenses so his only way to control their numbers is by taxing them.
