The Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, intends to expand the ULEZ scheme to the whole of London next year. At least he will unless there is strong opposition to it.
A good petition against it has been raised – see https://chng.it/c9xbC5fWTC . Please sign it!
An expanded ULEZ will mean drivers in outer London will need to pay £12.50 per day every day of the year if they drive an older vehicle. But there is simply no justification on environmental grounds. It will make very little difference to air pollution.
The Mayor is just scaremongering in the interest of raising taxes to help pay for his financial mismanagement of TfL.
Anyone directly affected by these proposals should also write to their Member of Parliament because only the Government can stop Sadiq Khan pursuing these damaging policies. See https://www.parliament.uk/get-involved/contact-an-mp-or-lord/contact-your-mp/
BUT DO MAKE SURE YOU SIGN THE PETITION!
