Petrol and diesel users are facing fines of up to £130, if they drive on certain London roads. Nine roads in east London have banned petrol and diesel cars in a bid to combat rising emissions.
At peak times, only hybrid and electric cars are allowed to drive on certain routes of Hackney and Islington. Petrol and diesel users will subsequently be fined.
The scheme promotes ‘electric streets only’. This is due to the alarming rise in harmful, toxic emissions in the capital.
“Islington and Hackney have seized the opportunity to give people a really strong message about taking pollution seriously and to show the scale of London’s health emergency.”
London Assembly member, Caroline Russell
Between 7-10am and 4-7pm on weekdays, drivers who’s car emissions are above 75g/km will be fined £130.
At least 50 areas in London exceed the EU legal limit of nitrogen dioxide, posing a risk to health.
“Failing to act on poor air quality, which causes nearly 10,000 premature deaths across London every year, is not an option, and that’s why we’re being bolder than ever in our efforts to tackle it.
“We’re thrilled to be launching our ultra-low emissions streets – the first of their kind in the UK – which will reclaim the streets from polluting petrol and diesel vehicles, and improve the area for thousands of people every day.”
Feryal Demirci, the Deputy Mayor of Hackney
This new scheme is enforced from today, ahead of the ultra low emissions zone which is being introduced next year.
