Petition Revoke powers to charge CAZ, LEZ, and ULEZ, and require refund of past charges
Vehicles are already taxed annually based upon emissions. We believe allowing further charging is unfair and should be stopped immediately. Only monitoring schemes should be allowed, to assist in understanding traffic flows and pollution levels, and to aid in future road and traffic flow planning.
Schemes are having a detrimental effect on some of those least able to pay. Some people have lost jobs, had to give up jobs, lost small businesses and been put into a position where they are unable to visit and provide ongoing support to family members. Global emission reduction should be the aim, but these schemes often target small areas. Prematurely scrapping vehicles that are serviceable and manufacturing vehicles to replace them can also have a net negative impact.
