ABD spokesman Nigel Humphries comments: Councils all over Britain are looking at plans to punish and fine those they perceive as ‘polluters’ with no scientific evidence of a problem (2). These are often set to trap even recent ‘economy cars’. This will be a disastrous effect of ‘localism’ and is totally unjustified. The London ULEZ is already an example of this. It must be stamped out now or the British habit of rolling over and accepting all could change come election time.
