Drivers of the most polluting vehicles face toxicity charge to enter central London as of today



Drivers of the most polluting vehicles will have to pay almost double to enter the centre of London as of today.
 
The new £10 toxicity T-charge will be paid in addition to the congestion charge of £11.50, taking the total to £21.50, and covers the same area and operating times as the existing congestion charge zone.


It mainly applies to diesel and petrol vehicles registered before 2006 which do not meet the so-called "Euro 4" European directive to regulate vehicle emissions.


London Mayor Sadiq Khan has launched the T-charge to tackle London's air pollution and prepare the city for the introduction of the ultra-low emission zone, which he plans to introduce in April 2019.
