Major UK city to ban petrol and diesel cars: low emissions zone

 A LOW Emissions Zone will see all vehicles affected when driving into the city, with only the least-polluting cars permitted.


Glasgow City Council has announced it will include all vehicles travelling into the city centre as part of the Low Emissions Zone LEZ) from June next year. Currently the LEZ includes buses driving in the city but will now be expanded to all cars in order to “improve air quality, protect public health and support wider climate change ambitions by encouraging more sustainable transport options.”

A City Administration Committee approved the moves on Thursday and the plans will now be submitted to the Scottish Government for approval.

The LEZ will apply to all vehicle types other than motorbikes, mopeds, emergency vehicles and disabled blue badge holders.

Failing to comply with the LEZ will result in a £60 penalty charge, reduced by 50 percent if paid within 14 days.
