London’s Ultra Low Emission Zone is set to expand on October 25, with thousands more drivers set to be included in the new area. Transport for London (TfL) have said nearly 10 million people have used its online checker to see whether they will need to pay the additional charge if they drive in the zone.

“And it’s 24/7?!?

“People genuinely believe this Government’s full motivation is the pollution?

“People can’t see how this adversely impacts and disenfranchises the poorer Londoners?!?”

A third commenter, Bryan, slammed the changes being made to the ULEZ. 

They said: “The UK accounts for one percent of global emissions.
