Are you prepared for the ultra-low emission zone?
To improve air quality, the ultra-low emission zone (ULEZ) is being introduced in central London from 8th April 2019. What does this mean and how can you prepare?
From 8th April 2019, all vehicles coming into the ULEZ will need to meet tighter exhaust emission standards or otherwise pay a daily charge to travel within a ULEZ zone.
The ULEZ is designed to reduce exhaust PM (particular matter or ‘soot’) NOx (nitrogen oxide) and NO2 (nitrogen dioxide) emissions, making central London a safer and more pleasant environment to be in.
