LONDON LOW EMMISION ZONE

It doesn’t come in until October 2010 for vans and even then it will only be for vehicles that don’t meet Euro III standards. So unless you’re running vans over 8 years old there won’t be a problem.

    It’s much bigger than the Congestion Charge zone Drew. All the area within the red border on this map:

    They’re not doing it to raise money Drew. The penalties are deliberately set at high levels so that no-one in their right mind would chance being caught out by them. They’re trying to make it more financially viable to update your 7 year old vehicle than it would be to keep the vehicle and pay the charge.

    He’s responsible for the whole of Greater London Billy. I can’t see that this will make any difference at all to most transport operators. How many of us run 7 year old trucks or 8 year old vans anyway?

    On the plus side – if you’re driving a foreign registered vehicle you’ve got to pay the penalty even if it’s LEZ compliant unless you register it with TfL two weeks before you enter the LEZ.
