London’s LEZ is a big cost for small benefit

The proposed London Low Emission Zone (LEZ) offers poor value for money, excludes 94 per cent of the capital’s vehicle population, and will not enable air quality targets to be met according to the Freight Transport Association. The LEZ is due to be introduced in 2008.

Trucks that do not meet the standard (Euro 3 in 2008 and Euro 4 in 2010) will have to pay a daily charge of up to £200 to enter the capital and failure to pay will result in a penalty charge in the region of £1,000.
