    Will I be hit by Ulez and how much will it cost me?

    Many more motorists will be liable for a daily charge after London’s Ultra Low Emission Zone was expanded. これが 12 key questions about the scheme:

    What vehicles are affected? It depends how much nitrogen dioxide it emits, which is generally linked to its age. For diesel cars, most of those that meet the minimum standard were first registered after September 2015. Compliant petrol cars are typically those registered after 2005.

    How can I check the status of my vehicle? Transport for London is urging people to use its online checker by visiting www.tfl.gov.uk/modes/driving/check-your-vehicle.

    What is the charge for non-compliant vehicles? The daily fee is £12.50 for cars, motorcycles and vans up to 3.5 トン. Heavier vehicles, including lorries, buses and coaches, are charged £100.

    When do charges apply? All day, every day of the year except on Christmas Day.

    What is the Ultra Low Emission Zone (ウレス)? It is an area in London where drivers of older, more polluting vehicles are charged a daily fee.

    What changed in October? It previously only covered parts of central London, but it became 18 倍大きい.

    What are the new boundaries? The Ulez was extended to include all areas within the North and South Circular roads.

    Who has done this and why? The change has been implemented by London mayor Sadiq Khan in an attempt to improve air quality in the capital.

    How quickly do I have to pay? You have until midnight on the third day after the journey.

    How do I do it? You can pay online through TfL’s website, using the Pay to Drive in London app, or by phone. Drivers also have the option of setting up automatic billing so they are charged monthly.

    What happens if I do not pay? You could be handed a Penalty Charge Notice for £160, reduced to £80 if paid within a fortnight.

    Where does the money go? TfL says the cash it receives from the Ulez is reinvested into improving London’s transport network and to improve air quality. It insists ‘we don’t make a profitfrom the scheme.

    The note, 沿って 51 Tory politicians, 前記: ‘Charging drivers to enter the capital flies in the face of yourLondon is Openmessage andLet’s Do London” 運動.

    ‘It would erect a barrier around Greater London, keeping visitors, customers and workers away, benefiting no-one and hurting everyone.

    The plan would involve drivers with vehicles registered outside the city having to pay once they enter boroughs such as Croydon, Enfield, Hillingdon and Havering.

    Enforcing the changes and any infrastructure is under review, but camera coverage is already in place on the Greater London Boundary for the Low Emission Zone.

    The politicians said the proposed charge would see pay slashed by up to £1,000 a year for those regularly heading into the city.

    They said it would also split communities from their nearest town centre, school or hospital and impact police officers and firefighters.

    And some commuters would have to pay staggering charges of up to £33-per-day due to the new levy, Congestion Charge and Ultra Low Emission Zone.

    The letter continued: ‘For Outer London, a boundary charge would penalise people visiting family and friends.

    ‘It would hurt local businesses and high streets which rely on customers and visitors from outside the capital.

    ‘It would also deter people living outside the boundary from working in Greater London, undermining our businesses and public services.

    ドキュメント, organised by AM for Bexley and Bromley Peter Fortune, 追加: ‘Over half of London’s police officers and firefighters live outside the capital.

    ‘According to a London NHS Trust, one-fifth of its staff, doctors and nurses could be hit by the charge.

    ‘A survey of schools in the London Borough of Bromley also revealed that many teachers live outside the capital.

    ‘One school said that 40 per cent of its employees could be hit by the charge, warning that it would struggle to retain and recruit teaching staff.

    Mr Khan has threatened the Greater London Boundary Charge throughout the pandemic as a way to raise cash to bail out City Hall.

    Last year he suggested a scheme like it to reduce the number of journeys by up to 15 per cent and raise £500million a year.

    The Labour Mayor said at the time: ‘Ministers have failed to play fair by Londoners when it comes to financing our world-renowned transport system.

    ‘It is high time they did so. Londoners pay £500m worth of Vehicle Excise Duty every year, which is then spent on maintaining roads outside the capital.

    ‘It is not fair on London that our drivers should subsidise the rest of the country’s roads and get nothing in return.

    The vehicle excise duty is currently taken from drivers who live in London but spent mostly outside the capital.

    Public transport into and around the city was desolate for months due to most businesses letting their staff work from home to avoid spreading the virus.

    Officials have been looking into whether a new Greater London Boundary Charge could work for non-Londoners, with the cash being pumped back into city services.

    But the scheme would take up to two years to bring in, meaning it would not be ready until after London has bounced back from the crisis.

    Up to 1.3million vehicles travel into London each week, with one million into the outer boroughs.

    They could face huge charges getting into and driving around the city, with an expanded ULEZ and Congestion Charge zone already in place.

    In October Londoners blasted Mr 氏族長‘s ULEZ expansion because they say it has left them facing an extra five mile trip to avoid being ‘taxed to recycle’.

    Residents in leafy Richmond say their local waste centre has been sucked into the ultra-low emission zone following its expansion on Monday.

    It means residents living in the town and driving older vehicles face a £12.50 charge if they want to take their recycling to the local tip.

    The zone was expanded to cover all areas within the North and South Circular roadshome to some 3.8 百万人 – in a bid to lower emissions in the capital.

    結果として, Townmead Road Re-use and Recycling Centre in Richmond, ロンドン南西部, is now in the ULEZ zone.

    But the nearby district of Richmond, which the recycling centre serves, is not.

    Residents said the move is ‘wholly unfairon members of the community who ‘just want to do that right thing’.

    And they have been further enraged after Mr Khan urged them to drive to a recycling centre in Hounslowa journey which is more than three times the distance.

    The ULEZ zone expansion was introduced to make the previous zone 18 倍大きい.

    The zone now encompasses areas within the north and south circular roads and has been expanded in a bid to tackle air pollution and reduce NO2 levels which can be harmful to lungs

    ALL YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT THE ULEZ

    The ultra-low emission zone (ULEZ) was introduced in London in April 2019. Here are some of the key questions around the scheme:

    それは何ですか? The ULEZ is a way of charging vehicles which emit the most nitrogen oxide for entering parts of London.

    When does it apply? The daily charge runs from midnight to midnight every day.

    Where is it happening? The scheme is within the same area as the congestion charging zone, before being expanded to within the North and South Circular roads from October 2021.

    What vehicles are included? All vehicles are affected apart from black taxis. It applies to all petrol cars made before 2006 and diesel cars made before 2015. London residents are not excluded.

    How much does it cost to enter the zone with an older vehicle? It costs £12.50 for most vehicle types, including cars, motorcycles and vans. Heavier vehicles such as lorries, buses and coaches are liable for a £100 charge.

    How can I avoid the charge? To be exempt from the Ulez charge, petrol cars, vans and minibuses must meet the Euro 4 emissions standard and diesels must meet Euro 6. That means the oldest cars that can be driven in central London without paying are roughly a four-year-old diesel model or a 13-year-old petrol model.

    What happens if I don’t pay? If you fail to pay the charge, car drivers face a £160 Penalty Charge Notice (reduced to £80 if paid within 14 日々). Lorry drivers will be handed a much larger fine of £1,000 (reduced to £500 if paid within 14 日々).

    What if I don’t know my vehicle’s emissions standard? Drivers can check whether their vehicle is liable for a charge by entering its registration on the Transport for London website.

    It has operated since April 2019, but previously only covered the same area of central London as the Congestion Charge.

    It now includes all areas within the North and South Circular roads in an attempt to boost air quality.

    Drivers of vehicles which do not comply with minimum emissions standards are being now being charged £12.50-a-day.

    For diesel cars to avoid the charge they must generally have been first registered after September 2015, while most petrol models registered from 2005 are also exempt.

    It is another blow for drivers and comes as the price of petrol hit a new record high. 周り 130,000 drivers are thought to be impacted.

    As part of the expansion, recycling centre now falls just short of the A205 South Circular boundary which runs over Kew Bridge and is exempt from the emissions tax.

    A camera will capture anyone leaving the recycling centre or Mortlake Crematorium on Townmead Road.

    Councillors and residents are concerned about accessing key services and said people who are trying to save the planet or bury their loved ones could end up being penalised.

    Angry residents were also quick to point out the contradiction of cutting back emissions while dissuading people from recycling.

    A survey taken at the time found three in five motorists were unaware London’s pollution charge zone for older vehicles was being expanded.

    のみ 43 per cent of drivers said they are aware of the expansion, according to the study by car sales website Motorway.

    Just a third – 35 パーセント – surveyed knew how to check if their vehicle was compliant with ULEZ.

    Meanwhile even fewer were confident about the extended zone’s new boundaries, the poll of more than 2,000 明らかに.

    Three quarters of the panel surveyed live in Greater London and the remainder within an hour of the capital.

    The Mayor of London has been approached for comment.

    GLA Conservativesletter to Sadiq Khan in full:

    Dear Mr Mayor,

    We are writing to request you rule out the introduction of a boundary charge for drivers entering Greater London in the latest Transport for London (TfL) bailout negotiations.

    As outlined in TfL’s Financial Sustainability Plan, your proposal to charge up to £5.50 to drive into the capital would seriously hurt Outer London and the Home Counties.

    周り 1.35 million vehicles drive into Greater London each weekday. Of these trips, one million are into Outer London. A majority of these vehicles are registered outside the capital, so liable to pay your proposed daily boundary charge.

    This means at least 675,000 motorists would be hit by the charge each day. According to TfL’s initial estimates, the number of weekday car trips into Greater London would fall by 8%, それは 108,000 fewer visitors a day.

    Let’s be clear what these figures mean for our communities inside the capital and out.

    For Outer London, a boundary charge would penalise people visiting family and friends. It would hurt local businesses and high streets which rely on customers and visitors from outside the capital. It would also deter people living outside the boundary from working in Greater London, undermining our businesses and public services.

    Over half of London’s police officers and firefighters live outside the capital. According to a London NHS Trust, one-fifth of its staff, doctors and nurses could be hit by the charge.

    A survey of schools in the London Borough of Bromley also revealed that many teachers live outside the capital. One school said that 40% of its employees could be hit by the charge, warning that it would struggle to retain and recruit teaching staff.

    For the Home Counties, a boundary charge would mean a substantial pay cut of up to £1,000 a year for people who regularly drive into Greater London for work. It would also separate some communities from their nearest town centre, school or hospital.

    Many could face charges of up to £33 a day to drive into the capitalthe combined cost of the Greater London Boundary Charge, Congestion Charge and Ultra Low Emission Zone.

    It also punishes people who are only able to access London’s public transport network by driving to places such as Stanmore and Epping. Unlike central London, many places in Outer London and neighbouring communities, like Harefield in Hillingdon and Biggin Hill in Bromley, have poor public transport links.

    If you are genuinely concerned by the number of cars driving into the capital, you should look at the public transport provision in Outer London. Rather than imposing new road taxes, you need to give people a real alternative to driving and install electric charging points to enable people to switch to electric vehicles.

    Fundamentally, charging drivers to enter the capital flies in the face of your ‘London is Openmessage and ‘Let’s Do London’ 運動. It would erect a barrier around Greater London, keeping visitors, customers and workers away, benefiting no-one and hurting everyone.

    Despite assuring the London Assembly back in June that TfL would publish a feasibility report into the charge, they are yet to do so. しかしながら, you continue to threaten this tax despite not knowing the impact it would have on people and businesses.

    You cannot push the bill for the failed policies and mismanagement of your mayoralty onto others. It is a fact that TfL has already lost billions of pounds before the pandemic even hit.

    Irresponsibly freezing fares cost at least £640 million in lost revenue. The delay to Crossrail has cost nearly £4 billion in bailouts and lost TfL £1.35 billion in fares revenue. TfL’s perks, bonuses and golden pensions waste millions of pounds a year.

    UK taxpayers will continue to keep London moving through this crisis. You do not need to threaten them. だが, you do need to do your bit to balance TfL’s books.

    We urge you to drop your boundary charge proposal as you enter new negotiations on a further bailout for TfL. This will be the fourth bailout and build on the almost £5 billion the Government has provided to keep London moving. Instead of making threats, we call on you to constructively work with the Government to agree on a funding settlement that works for London and the entire country.

    Will you be charged to drive where you live? Up to 300k motorists added to £12.50 London ULEZhere’s 14 areas where similar zones are imminent

      おまけ 300,000 motorists living inor commuting intoLondon now face a daily charge of £12.50 to use their motors following the expansion of the Ultra Low Emission Zone (ULEZ) in the capital.

      Introduced in April 2019, the zone has been extended to 18 times its original size and is set to hit the poorest residents in the capital who cannot afford to replace their older cars for newer models that are exempt from the daily charge.

      But it’s not just Londoners who are going to be stung each day they get behind the wheel of their vehicles. Drivers of older cars in some 15 cities will soon have to come to terms with the concept of emissions tax zones that could turn vehicle ownership from a convenience to a financial burden.

      Under government orders, councils have been told to curb their air pollution levelsand to do so, they should rid their roads of the dirtiest vehicles.

      Birmingham has already introduced its Clean Air Zone (CAZ) 六月に 2021, demanding an £8 payment each time a user of a non-compliant vehicle enters the boundary around the city centre.

      We outline which cities have plans for similar zones to be in place before the end of 2022 – though not all of them affecting car drivers. Here’s a guide to each one and when they are expected to launch.

      ロンドン – Introduced (expanded on 25 10月 2021)

      それは何ですか: Ultra Low Emission Zone charging older petrol and diesel vehicles in the capital

      When is it going to be introduced: Enforced in the Congestion Charge Zone from 8 4月 2019 – expanded 18 times in size to inner London on 25 10月 2021

      Emission tax type: ULEZ

      Vehicles charged: Buses, コーチ, taxis (registered black cabs exempt), private hire vehicles (PHVs), heavy goods vehicles (HGVs), light goods vehicles (LGVs) and car drivers

      Cost to car drivers: £12.50 daily charge if a diesel car isn’t Euro 6 or petrol isn’t at least Euro 4

      The capital’s ULEZ was first enforced within the limits of the Congestion Charge Zone from 8 4月 2019 と 25 10月 221 was expanded to cover most of inner London.

      Drivers of diesel cars not adhering to Euro 6 emissions standards (generally registered from 2016) and petrols failing to meet Euro 4 (generally registered from 2006) have to stump up £12.50 a day to enter the zone.

      That’s on top of the £15 a day Congestion Charge, taking the current total for entering central London to £24 if you don’t have a compliant motor.

      ULEZ is operational 24 1日に数時間, seven days a week apart from Christmas Day. It’s a daily charge, which means if you enter the zone at 23:00 and leave at 02:00, you will need to pay twice (£25).

      Driving a non-compliant car into the capital just once a week will rack up an annual bill of £650 – more than many drivers pay for insurance and road tax combined. Using an ineligible car five days a week will hammer drivers with a £3,250 bill per annum.

      It is enforced by Automatic Number Plate Recognition (ANPR) cameras on the outskirts of the zones and failed payment within 24 hours of entering the zone will result in fines of £160 (halved to £80 if paid within two weeks).

      The capital's Ultra Low Emission Zone has been enforced in Central London since April 2019. しかしながら, から 25 10月 2021 it has been expanded to cover much of the city, with up to 300k people predicted to face the driving tax if £12.50 each day

      The ULEZ extended on 25 10月 2021 to cover the hugely-populated area up to, but not including, the A406 North Circular and A205 South Circular roadsand there is no resident discount available.

      TfL estimates that 100,000 cars per day will be affected by the ULEZ expansion along with 35,000 vans and 3,000 HGVs.

      Is your car CAZ, LEZ, ULEZ and ZEZ compliant?

      Knowing your car’s Euro emissions rating is more important than ever, given the increasing number of levies and fines being introduced for older cars, especially diesels.

      Most Clean Air, Low Emission and Ultra Low Emission Zones beingor alreadyimplemented impact pre-Euro 4 emissions petrol and pre-Euro 6 emission diesel cars.

      It’s worth using the ULEZ checker online (or via your car’s V5/V5C logbook at the bottom of Page 2 in the section entitled ‘Exhaust Emissions’) to see which category your models falls into, though it roughly will be designated by when it was first registered, as listed below:

      ユーロ 1 – から 31 12月 1992

      ユーロ 2 – から 1 1月 1997

      ユーロ 3 – から 1 1月 2001

      ユーロ 4 – から 1 1月 2006 (common minimum standard for petrol cars)

      ユーロ 5 – から 1 1月 2011

      ユーロ 6 – から 1 9月 2015 (common minimum standard for diesel cars

      広告

      Based on these estimations, the ULEZ will bring in some £1,987,500 every day for the Greater London Authority. That’s almost £14million a week, or £723million a year.

      しかしながら, the AA believes more than 300,000 people in the London area will be affected — many on lower incomes who will struggle to afford to trade up to a cleaner and more expensive car.

      AA president Edmund King said: ‘We all want cleaner air but the AA calculates that the London ULEZ on Monday will hit three times more car owners than the Mayor is letting on.

      ‘The vast majority of those are low-income London residents with the least ability to afford a replacement vehicle.

      ‘In effect, they are being priced off the road and being denied the mobility that is often critical for getting to work, shopping with a large family and having flexibility in emergencies, such as rushing a child to A&E.

      Those who have returned to offices in the capital on a hybrid working basis of just two days a week would incur £1,125 in charges per year if their vehicle is non-compliant, while a driver who enters the ULEZ five days a week for work would have to pay up to £2,800 per annum

      A report commissioned by City Hall predicts that the ULEZ expansion could see almost 300,000 fewer people developing chronic diseases, such as asthma and type-2 diabetes, than otherwise expected by 2050.

      A scrappage scheme has been offered to ‘low incomedrivers who claim at least one form of benefit as an ‘incentiveto ditch an older car and replace it with a ULEZ-compliant model.

      しかしながら, the £2,000 offer will barely make the latest greener vehicles accessible to the most hard-up Londoners who rely on their cars for commuting, the school run and everyday errands. Funding for the grant was almost entirely used up before the extension in October.

      A spokesperson told us the scheme has helped improve ULEZ compliance, と 80 per cent of all cars owned by people living within the soon-to-be-expanded zone’s borders now meeting the emissions standards.

      The first CAZ in England outside of London launched on 15 行進 2021 and demand the highest daily payments from drivers of buses and lorries that enter the centre of Bathbut private cars and motorbikes are exempt from the scheme, 今のところ.

      Bath and North East Somerset Council said the move could cut its air pollution to below legal levels by the end of 2021.

      Drivers of high-emission commercial vans are forced to pay a £9 fee and HGVs and buses £100. Private hire vehicles and taxis also have to pay £9 per day.

      ANPR cameras are installed on all roads leading into the zone, and vehicle number plates will be checked against a DVLA database to make sure the area is enforced.

      Motorists with non-compliant, chargeable vehicles – including those from outside the UK – must declare and pay for their journey online or they will receive a penalty charge notice.

      There are currently no plans for passenger cars and vans to face the daily charge.

      Birmingham is the first Clean Air Zone to impact car owners on Britain: All users of pre-Euro 4 petrol and pre-Euro 6 diesel cars have since June 2021 faced a daily charge of £8 to drive within the limits of the A4540 Middleway Ring Road in the West Midlands city

      それは何ですか: Daily charge for drivers of older petrol and diesel cars to enter the limits of the city ring road

      When is it going to be introduced: Enforced from 1 六月 2021

      Emission tax type: CAZ D

      Vehicles charged: Buses, コーチ, taxis, PHVs, HGVs LGVs and car drivers

      Cost to car drivers: £8 daily charge if a diesel car isn’t Euro 6 or petrol isn’t at least Euro 4

      Birmingham’s CAZ D is Britain’s first pollution-related tax on drivers of passenger cars outside the capital.

      The zone’s border is Birmingham’s ring road, essentially meaning drivers of non-compliant motors will be stung each time they enter the city centre.

      All drivers of pre-Euro 4 petrol and pre-Euro 6 diesel cars will face a daily charge of £8 to drive within the limits of the A4540 Middleway Ring Road.

      It was initially due to have come into force overnight on Tuesday 1 六月 2021 but Birmingham City Council announced later that morning that it would ‘soft launchthe scheme, with charging delayed for a fortnight.

      This was reportedly due to the lack of local understanding and knowledge of the zone being introduced, which resulted in floods of complaints from motorists driving into the West Midlands city on the first day of operation.

      Enforcement of charges began on 14 六月 2021, with one city councillor admitting: ‘We understand that not everybody in the city, despite all our extensive conversations, is aware of this particular project.

      The council-backed levy is expected to affect around a quarter of all cars on the city’s roads, according to the AA.

      The Birmingham CAZ is enforced 24 1日に数時間, 365 days a year. It means a driver who enters the zone at 11pm and leaves after midnight will have to pay the charge twice

      Birmingham City Council had estimated ahead of its introduction that a quarter of cars used in the city are non-compliant with the scheme

      The Birmingham CAZ is enforced 24 1日に数時間, 365 days a year. It means a driver who enters the zone at 11pm and leaves after midnight will have to pay the charge twice

      The daily fee should be paid online and there is also a government-funded Clean Air Zone team you can call on 0300 029 8888 for assistance.

      There is an allocated 13-day payment window for the scheme, so you can either pay six days before the day you use your non-compliant vehicle in the CAZ, on the same day you enter the zone, or up to six days after (まで 11.59 hours on the sixth day) you drove into the restriction.

      The scheme will operate 24 1日に数時間, 365 days a year and be policed by ANPR cameras. It means a driver who enters the zone at 11pm and leaves after midnight will have to pay the charge twice.

      Those with ineligible vehicles who fail to stump up the daily amount will be slapped with a fine of £120 (reduced to £60 if paid within a fortnight).

      Private cars, motorcycles and vans will not be charged, though older polluting HGVs, buses and coaches will pay £50 per day to travel through the zoneand non-compliant taxis and private hire vehicles will pay £10 per day.

      Portsmouth City Council has confirmed that it has received £6.6million in funding from the government to setup the zone.

      Some of those funds have been used between April and September 2021 to install ANPR cameras at 39 locations on roads within the CAZ, allowing for the scheme to be enforced from 29 11月.

      A portion of the money will also be used to add public electric vehicle charge points around the city.

      This is the Clean Air Zone boundary planned for Bradford

      While neighbouring Leeds (and Leicester) have scrapped their plans to introduce clean air zones for nowmainly due to the fall in air pollution levels and traffic dropped during the pandemicBradford still intends to go ahead with its own version from early next year.

      The proposed Bradford Clean Air Zone would cover the city centre, Canal Road corridor, Shipley and Saltaire where pollution is highest. しかしながら, it won’t sting passenger car drivers or motorcyclists.

      代わりに, the zone will only charge HGVs, LGVs, バス, coaches and private hire vehicles, with daily rate being as high as £50 for non-compliant vehicles.

      There will be a ‘comprehensive programmeof grants and exemptions to help local businesses get ready for the CAZ and to help upgrade some non-compliant vehicles, says the local council.

      While car drivers will avoid charges, Bradford Council intends to launch a ‘No Idlingcampaign to cut down on air pollution in the district. It would target motorists who keep their engine running, and keep spewing out fumes from their vehicles, while parked.

      Oxford City Council and Oxfordshire County Council are set to introduce Britain’s first Zero Emission Zone (ZEZ) ‘pilot schemein the city centre next year.

      The plans have been approved for the zone to cover eight streets only: Bonn Square; Queen Street; Cornmarket; part of Market Street; Ship Street; St Michael’s Street; New Inn Hall Street; and Shoe Lane.

      These are the seven streets where the Oxford ZEZ will be first piloted under plans due to go lives in February

      Vehicles used in the zone would be subject to charges, depending on their emissions.

      Zero-emission vehicles will escape any fee, while drivers of ultra-low emission hybrid cars (producing less than 75g/km CO2) will be charged £2 per fay from February 2022, rising to £4 daily from 2025.

      Drivers of petrol cars meeting at least Euro 4 standards and the latest Euro 6 diesels will pay £4 per day from next year, rising to £8 per day from 2025, while any motors older than that will have to fork out £10 daily when it’s introduced next yearand a massive £20 a day from 2025, under the current plans.

      The charging zone isn’t 24-hour operational, running between 7am and 7pm, and there are intended discounts and exemptions for some road users, including disabled motorists, residents and businesses operating from inside the zone.

      Next year’s pilot will allow the councils to ‘test how the scheme will work before expanding it to a wider area’, those managing the ZEZ say.

      Vehicles charged: Buses, コーチ, taxis, PHVs, HGVs LGVs and car drivers

      Cost to car drivers: Penalty Charge Notice of £60 (reduced by 50% if paid within 2 週) for non-compliant cars

      The four biggest Scottish citiesDundee, Edinburgh and Glasgoware currently subject to plans being drawn up for Low Emission Zones (LEZ), with the intention to go live next year.

      しかしながら, enforcement of the zones will not begin until 2024, under existing plans to encourage motorists and businesses to prepare and replace their older vehicles. A LEZ Leadership Group is currently ironing out regulatory steps required for the Scottish Government and each local authority to introduce zones to restrict the use of older, polluting vehicles.

      Sign designating the boundary of Glasgow's Low Emission Zone (LEZ) were erected in 2019, though it is unlikely to go live until the middle of 2022 and enforcement not beginning until 2024 to allow motorists and businesses to prepare

      Once legislation is in place, local councils will be given the freedom to adapt their own versions of a LEZ in order to meeting their air pollution targets.

      Each LEZ is likely to be in the city centre. It could see a ban on vehicles that fail to meet the minimum required emission standardslikely to be Euro 6 for diesel cars and Euro 4 for petrols. The restriction will also impact diesel-powered Euro VI HGVs and buses.

      These LEZs will differ to the aforementioned zones as non-compliant vehicles will be banned entirely, rather than charged a fee.

      Instead of being able to pay a non-compliance charge, the LEZ will see owners of ineligible motors issued with a Penalty Charge Notice.

      The initial penalty charge for all non-compliant vehicles is set at £60, reduced by 50 per cent if it is paid within a fortnight.

      A surcharge is also proposed whereby the penalty amount doubles with each subsequent breach of the rules detected in the same LEZ. The penalty charges are capped at £480 for cars and light goods vehicles and £960 for buses and HGVs.

      後 90 days of last breaching the rules, the surcharge rate will be reset.

      The Scottish LEZs will operate continuously, 24 1日に数時間, 週7日, all year round, and be enforced by Automatic Number Plate Recognition (ANPR) cameras linked to a national vehicle licencing database.

      Some non-compliant vehicles will be allowed to use the zones without being issued a PCN. These include: police vehicles; ambulance and emergency vehicles; Scottish Fire and Rescue; Her Majesty’s Coastguard; National Crime Agency; Military vehicles; Vehicles for disabled persons (including blue badge holders); Showman’s vehicles.

      ‘Historic vehicleswill also be exemptlikely classic cars over 40 years of age.

      Cost to car drivers:

      As part of the Greater Manchester Clean Air Plan, a joint charging clean air zone has been proposed to cover all or parts of Bolton, Bury, オールダム, Rochdale, Stockport, Tameside, Trafford, Wigan and the cities of Manchester and Salford to cover most of the whole of Greater Manchester.

      The zone would not affect private cars.

      It’s set to be introduced on 30 五月 2022, with city officials saying it will need to be in place in order for the area to meet air pollution reduction targets by 2024.

      In order to help encourage commercial drivers to switch to cleaner vehicles before the zone comes into force, local leaders are asking for a multi-million-pound packageincluding £8million for businesses impacted by the economic impacts of the daily chargesto support those affected.

      Cost to motorists with non-compliant cars:

      A legal case regarding the installation of ANPR cameras needed for a CAZ to function prevented Newcastle from introducing its zone in January 2021, with delays pushing back plans for the scheme to go live to later this year.

      This has again been delayed, with the proposed start date now July 2022.

      Proposals are for a scheme where older buses, コーチ, and lorries would face £50 daily tolls while vans and taxis that don’t meet the emissions standard required would be charged £12.50 each time they enter the zone’s boundaries.

      Private cars will be exempt from the charge.

      Motorists using any of the roads marked in the blue area of this map of Bristol driving a CAZ non-compliant passenger car will be charged £9 a day

      Bristol’s Clean Air Zone follows a similar pattern to other big cities: a predefined zone limit in the city centre; a 24-hour charging period that’s operational seven days a week, 365 days a year; and only the latest and cleanest passenger cars are exempt from the charge.

      No vehicles are banned from entering Bristol’s Clean Air Zone, but drivers of diesels cars failing to meet Euro 6 standards and petrols not adhering to at least Euro 4 will have to pay £9 each time they enter the boundaries.

      Bristol City Council estimates that over 71 per cent of vehicles travelling in and out of the zone on a daily basis are compliant with the restrictions. Drivers who live within the limits of the CAZ will have to pay up each time they make a journey in their non-compliant vehicle.

      There’ll be exemptions only for those who earn less than £24,000 a year, and no more than £12.45 per hourbut they will only be able to apply for one year’s exemption. Hospital visitors will also escape the charge.

      Other larger vehicleincluding HGVs, buses and coacheswill be charged £100 for each day they enter the zone.

      If a vehicle has to travel into the CAZ because of an official diversion from a road outside the zone, for example the M5, the vehicle will not be charged, the council says.

      Following a series of delays in submitting its plans to central government, Bristol City Council was ordered to have its system for charging polluting vehicles in place by October 29 今年.

      しかしながら, the council announced on 2 7月 2021 that the CAZ will not launch until the summer of 2022 – some nine months later than originally planned.

      Sheffield City Council had originally proposed a Clean Air Zone for the city centre in 2018, with plans for it to be introduced and enforced from 2020.

      しかしながら, the impact of Covid-19 on traffic levels saw vehicle use drop and decision makers delay the plans.

      The intention is for a CAZ C zone, which means taxis and LGVs that do not meet the emission standards required will be charged £10 a day and coaches, buses and HGVs will be charged £50 to drive within the zone.

      Private cars will not pay because they only contribute to 50 per cent of the inner city pollution despite making up 80 per cent of the traffic, the council said.
