So ill scrap my van because it has to much emission only to be scrapped and melted down which would cause more emissions to be sold to the far east causing even more emisions getting there
Crazy British do gooders :curse:
Not the ideal solution but a little better than here in Canada ie

Keep selling ridiculous cars like the Cadillac Escalade that do 6 miles to the Gallon, don't have any MOT tests that mean you can drive it untill the road salt completely corrodes the subframe and it almost splits in half

If you want clean air in the city you have to start somewhere. Its not a tax as you have the option not to pay - by getting a cleaner vehicle or not entering the London zone.

According to the coachist on the BBC this morning it immediately applies to coaches. That's a problem to the operators as, in order to comply they have to have this year's model of coach which, for some reason, will not be usable after 2010. I suppose I should know what the 2010 issue is but I couldn't listen to more of the story for fear of dozing off at the wheel.

Second place on the incoherence stakes.

I suppose I'll have to find out what you're talking about. It's something to do tomorrow instead of insulting stoodents for a change.

Well , it didn't take that long.

What's the problem? Red Ken has turned out to be a world leader with his inner city toll thingy, and this one sounds like a bloody excellent next step to me.

Of course, what would I know?

If you want to know what a Low Emission Zone is, just do a google search for "LEZ". It's the first hit you want. Not the second. Oh no.

Your google is better than my google. The good link was fourth, not second.

I may be "busy" for a while.

I wonder how many people will be using Google Image Search to find a map of this LEZ?

Funny I left to get away from the Tree huggers like Bazz here, they are the ones that made the UK as sh*t as it has become so thought u guys would prefer to stay there and enjoy the fruits of your labour! Problem is the same will happen to Canada even if it will be another 30-40 years before its in that state. Gotta love the lefty doo - gooders they are everywhere.

Good old post though, interesting for a newbie to BE but oldie to Canada to read
