Moved to uk section.

This is the story about new and additional pollution charges coming to London.
Others (Manchester, Birmingham) looking to follow.

See https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-london-47815117

Quick guide.

Motorbikes that do not meet Euro 3 standards (pre-2007 vehicles)
Petrol cars and vans that do not meet Euro 4 standards (vehicles pre-2006)
Diesel cars and vans that do not meet Euro 6 standards (vehicles pre-2015)
Buses, coaches and lorries will need to meet or exceed the Euro 6 standards or pay £100 a day
Anybody who does not pay the charge will face a fine of £160, although a first offence may result in only a warning letter.


Pretty much most of the UK SLK/C diesels.

Its sad to read this as your pride and joy are now going to cost you a fortune or force you to sell on for peanuts and make you upgrade again .

least i sold a 4x4 Diesel just in time .........

Now particulates are the excuse.
Soon engine size, economy will follow.

No room for complacency on this.

It may prove good for out of town event hosts though.

That's another reason not to venture into inner London..... Not that I would really want to do that anyway!
