Series of videos explaining what ULEZ is and the impact of it on Londoners
London Mayor Sadiq Khan, is going ahead with plans to expand the ULEZ – Ultra Low Emission Zone – to cover the whole of Greater London right up to the M25. It will hit hardest on those already suffering from the cost of living crisis and will banish classic cars from the city’s streets. Plus he has no mandate for (80% of Greater Londoners were against it) and negligible benefit (according to his own TFL-led report). Here’s why.
London Mayor Sadiq Khan, is going ahead with plans to expand the ULEZ – Ultra Low Emission Zone – to cover the whole of Greater London right up to the M25. This is terrible news. It will hit hardest on those already suffering from the cost of living crisis and will banish classic cars from the city’s streets. Here’s why it’s wrong!
ULEZ Expansion – which will cost London 100s of millions in infrastructure and scrappage schemes, will have a virtually negligible impact benefitting the climate or London’s toxic pollution, according to Transport of London’s own commissioned report.
Report from the Anti-ULEZ protest 28 January 2023, at Trafalgar Square. We speak to the community directly affected and concerned by the ULEZ Expansion due at the end of August this year across the whole of Greater London. Strong views, valid points, high passion – watch now!
[UPDATE 17 January 2023]
It is now being reported that new documents released today reveal Sadiq Khan made ‘false and dishonest’ statements to the London Assembly on six occasions. The documents also show thousands of responses, 90% of which opposed the expansion, were secretly and improperly excluded from the final ULEZ consultation results after an intervention by the Mayor’s senior advisers. The intervention lowered the overall level of opposition in the final count by 3 percentage points (from 62% to 59%). You can read the story and download the actual documents here
I asked former Top Gear presenter, Motoring Expert and TV Personality, Quentin Wilson, as well Ian Plummer from Auto Trader, the most influential car classifieds organisation in the UK, about their thoughts on the ULEZ Expansion.
We MUST act now to save Modern Classics from the ULEZ threat!! The UK Government classifies classic cars as being older than 40 years old – that excludes tons of amazing classic cars, and potentially condemns many affordable modern classics to be crushed at the hands of a scrappage scheme. The government is WRONG! UNESCO partner FIVA defines classics as being 30 years and older and even recognises newer cars between 20 and 30 years old as potentially collectable and classic
I posted this video in May 2022 when London Mayor Sadiq Khan, first proposed plans to expand the ULEZ. I warned then, what we know now, this was a bad idea that would be harsh on those living and working in Greater London with little or no real benefit to our health.
Personal Cars Will Be Extinct Within A Generation! At Least for most of us – In less than 30 years from now, most of us won’t be able to have our own cars, and many of the major car manufacturers we know and love today – will have disappeared. Schemes like ULEZ could be the first step in killing our cars.
