Starting today, owners of vehicles with high-emissions must start to pay a new extra daily charge when driving in the busiest part of London.
This area was already subject to a congestion charge, but now all those using older vehicles in Central London will also have to pay £ 12.50 a day.
The affected vehicles are motorcycles manufactured before 2007 which do not comply with Euro 3 standards, petrol vehicles and vans manufactured prior to 2006 which do not meet Euro 4 standards, as well as diesel cars and vans manufactured before 2015 which don’t comply with Euro 6 standards.
The fee is much higher for buses and trucks if not Euro 6 compliant, with a charge of £ 100 a day.
These fees were introduced with the aim of reducing emissions by 45% within two years.
