    I'm only guessing but that seems to be the continuation of the A316, which is the continuation of the M3. When it goes through Twickenham it is still 40 mph because it is not under the control of the local council who have imposed a blanket 20 mph limit. So maybe it's linked to that somehow?

    Politicians (AKA Scumbags) love increasing taxes at start of their term.

    Within a year it will become clear that ULEZ does not collect as much money as planned, in fact it might start losing money (what I think is going to happen in Bham) and a lot more cleaner vehicles will be included.

    So is what you're claiming is the ULEZ will expand on the 25th and on the 26th they will change which cars are exempt from the fee, effective immediately?

    I'm didn't say it won't ever happen but I don't think it'll change within a year. By saying "after October this year" anything that changes at any time between 25th October and the end of the known universe you can claim as being a prediction worthy of an "I told you so".

    With such amazing powers of prediction and seeing the future, have you ever considered investing in the stock market?

    This is where the progressives want all the owners of the dirty vehicles to get stuck - then they'll take out the first dirty car and the last and finally the slaughter will begin...

    You've heard it on here first...

    Not true. You can check your vehicle here:

    https://tfl.gov.uk/modes/driving/ult...ulez-expansion

    The current ULEZ emissions standards will continue:
    • Euro 3 (NOx) for motorcycles, mopeds, motorised tricycles and quadricycles
    • Euro 4 (NOx) for petrol cars, vans and other specialist vehicles (up to and including 3.5 tonnes gross vehicle weight) and minibuses (up to and including 5 tonnes)
    • Euro 6 (NOx and PM) for diesel cars, vans and other specialist vehicles (up to and including 3.5 tonnes) and minibuses (up to and including 5 tonnes)
    The majority of cars will be exempt.

    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.
