As of today (April 8), drivers will have to pay a pollution charge in central London. The scheme aims to reduce the number of vehicles on the roads, to improve air quality in the capital. The Ultra Low Emission Zone (ULEZ) means most vehicles, including cars and vans, need to meet the ULEZ emissions standards. If they don't, their drivers must pay a daily charge to travel within the zone. Older, more polluting, cars are the vehicles that will not meet the emission standards, and therefore will be affected by the charge. It will cost £12.50 for most vehicles, including cars, motorcycles and vans (up to and including 3.5 tonnes) to drive in the zone, which covers central London. For heavy vehicles, including lorries (more than 3.5 tonnes) and buses and coaches (over five tonnes), it will cost £100. It will be in addition to the congestion charge, which already costs £11.50, making it a total cost of £24 to drive in the area. The zone will operate 24 hours a day, seven … [Read more...] about London now has an ultra low emission zone
The new ultra low emission zone (Ulez) will come into force today, forcing the worst polluting cars to clean up or pay a daily £12.50 charge. The zone will initially cover central London and will be clearly signposted with road signs along key boundary points. Cars and vans will need to meet new exhaust emissions standards or else pay the charge, which will operate 24 hours a day, seven days a week. It will come on top of the daily congestion zone charge, which stands at £11.50 and operates from 7am to 6pm, Monday to Friday. Fines for cars have been set at a maximum of £160, which will be reduced to £80 if it is paid within 14 days. For lorries, the penalties are higher: fines have been set at for £1,000 which will be cut to £500 if paid within two weeks.

London is preparing to enforce “world-leading” vehicle pollution restrictions from Monday as the capital attempts to clean up the toxic air blamed for thousands of premature deaths. The ultra-low emission zone, or Ulez, will launch at one minute past midnight, imposing a £12.50-a-day charge to drive into central London in all but the cleanest cars and vans. The move is expected to reduce road transport emissions by around 45%. The mayor, Sadiq Khan, unveiled research showing that almost 1,000 people a year in the city were hospitalised with asthma caused by pollution. The charge will be levied inside London’s congestion charge zone around the clock, and motorists driving polluting cars during the daytime will have to pay both charges, meaning it will cost £24 to take such vehicles into central London between 7am and 6pm. It will apply to drivers of diesel cars and vans whose engines are not certified to the latest Euro 6 standard, mandated from 2015, as well … [Read more...] about London prepares for launch of ultra-low emissions zone
