LONDON’S pollution charge zone for older vehicles has been significantly expanded, affecting tens of thousands of motorists.
Drivers of vehicles which do not comply with minimum emissions standards are being charged £12.50 to drive in the Ultra Low Emission Zone (Ulez).
The charge applies all day, every day, except on Christmas Day.
Drivers who fail to pay face being handed a Penalty Charge Notice of £160, reduced to £80 if paid within a fortnight.
The Ulez has operated since April 2019, but previously only covered the same area of central London as the Congestion Charge.
It now includes all areas within the North and South Circular roads in an attempt to boost air quality.
