ULEZ: The battle for Britain’s roads

Clean air zones aim to reduce air pollution by charging drivers of the most polluting vehicles – but with the public already feeling the financial pinch during a cost of living crisis, many feel ULEZ is just a money making scheme.

Mayor of London Sadiq Khan has been given the green light to go ahead with the expansion across the capital at the end of August and many commuters are outraged about digging deeper into their pockets to get from A to B.When the zone expands, around 700,000 cars in London will not be compliant, according to the RAC.

But the aim of ULEZ is cleaner air and better health for all – so what should take priority?
