Express.co.uk readers have also attacked Oxford’s new Zero Emissions Zone which charges drivers a daily fee for using a non-zero emissions vehicle. Some motorists have attacked the changes as “daylight robbery” while some claimed they would never return to the city.

The most polluting petrol and diesel owners are the most affected by the changes and will be hit with a £10 daily fee for entering the zone.

These drivers will soon face higher £20 per day fees from 2025 in a massive blow to road users.

Twitter user Stew Fisher said: “I know I’ve said it before but I say it again ‘Emission Zones’ like London’s ULEZ and Oxford’s ZEZ are an attack on the poor and disabled.

“Do you think rich people care?

“They can write off the expense while driving their big powerful cars, [whereas] vulnerable people cannot.”

Twitter user ‘littlebrother5’ also attacked the new changes as “daylight robbery”.

They said: “£10 a day plus fuel, plus road tax.

“The price of petrol at the moment this is nothing to do with clean air this is all about getting the people that can’t afford it off the road, daylight robbery.”

Express.co.uk readers have also attacked the new road tax fees in Oxford.

Express reader ‘Wierdsinbad’ added: “This is mostly going to affect the poor.

“Instead of helping the environment it will push people out of the areas it’s being used.”

‘Seeker26’ even added they would never visit the city centre again as they feel it is “hostile” to road users.
