Older vehicles to be charged more for polluting

Drivers will have to pay the new 'T-charge' from tomorrow

These are typically vehicles registered before 2006, but Transport for London suggests anyone who has a vehicle registered before 2008 should check to see if it is eligible for the charge.

Drivers of these cars will be expected to pay the charge every weekday between 7am and 6pm, with cameras around the capital used to enforce it.

"Small businesses which will be affected are likely to be hit hard by the introduction of the T-charge, which nearly doubles the cost of driving a vehicle through London during peak hours". Research by King College London found that 9,500 people die each year in the capital due to poor air quality.

The plans have come under criticism from conservative members of the London assembly and the federation of small businesses. Effectively, owners of the most polluting cars will pay about £21.50 or $28 per day to drive in central London. "There are children in London whose lungs are underdeveloped". Friends of the Earth campaigner Jenny Bates told Sky News that a programme of "meaningful financial assistance" was urgently needed "to help drivers of the dirtiest vehicles switch to something cleaner", as well as "bold policies" to cut traffic over all.
