London ULEZ (Ultra Low Emission Zone)

Posted on

0 Comments

Like and enjoy motors? Bike or Car, this will directly affect you! As well as motorcycling’s future freedom on a wider scale.

The TFL (Transport for London) ULEZ (Ultra Low Emission Zone) proposals for motor vehicles are out for consultation only through to 16.12.16 and, at present, the official literature from the TFL/Mayor of London’s office appears to be at least contradictory and it does not make clear whether or not motorbikes will be exempt from the forthcoming proposed ULEZ emissions charging.

The TFL info shown here all appears very complicated. See here 

Read it and you will see that some areas of the document state that motorbikes will be exempt, but in other places on the same page it says exactly the opposite.

Proposals shown in the document include that vehicles (cars and bikes) of 40 years or older (rolling, with the road tax), will be ULEZ exempt, but this is not set in stone – do you trust the powers that be not to renege on it?

Anyway, that stated by TFL does not appear to help anyone who rides a bike built between the mid-1970s and 2008!

As the ULEZ proposals may come into force as early as October 2017, it is a very serious business and could have grave and far reaching consequences for all motor fans, and bikers in particular, unless you act now
