    By Transport For London’s own figures, motorcycle emissions represent so close to 0% of the pollution problem that they put 0% on a pie chart.

    If they represent 0% of the problem why are they being charged?

    IT is difficult to come to any other decision; Mayor SC or K, is a puppet of the EU!

      The whole angle of this article seems to suggest that this ULEZ has been imposed by the EU. Is that the case or has London opted to implement these measures itself? No matter, let’s blame the EU anyway.

        It was implemented in London by The Mayor for sure, although the article is aimed at the whole of Europe. Lots of people think ‘Well I never go to London anyway’ but may think differently if it upsets their holiday plans or they can’t ride in a city close to home.

    yearly hydrocarbon emissions of the average two-wheeler in urban traffic measured up to 49 times higher than that of the average car, according to the study, due to be published in the journal Environmental Science and Technology.

    “The importance of [motorbike] emissions has been underestimated in legislation, giving manufacturers little motivation to improve aftertreatment systems,” said Dr Vasic. The tests were carried out on a variety of Yamaha, Piaggio and Honda 50cc scooters and Suzuki, Honda and BMW motorbikes with engine sizes ranging from 800cc to 1150cc.

    The above excerpt from a report in a reputable British broadsheet makes TFL’s figures seem ludicrous

    Just another stealth tax, I believe than Chaka Khan had promised too look into the two wheel solution for London during his campaign for major( ).like any other minister I wouldn’t trust them as far as you could throw them. Thank god I own a few classic polluting scooters too let Londoners know what a two stroke really smells like
