News on environmental zones and air pollution
The so-called "Ultra Low Emission Zone (ULEZ)" has been in place in London since April. Anyone who cannot meet the Euro 6 standard for diesel or the Euro 4 standard for petrol can only pass against payment of an exhaust charge. A Brit seemed to have been relatively indifferent to all this - he can proudly call a total of 81 fine notices "his own". The sum to be paid amounts to according to dpa to approximately 15,000 euro - for one and the same infringement. He had not paid the mentioned exhaust charge 81 times, which consequently leads to this enormous sum.
