Facing millions of pounds worth of fines from the European Commission and receiving and order by the Supreme Court to cut pollution in it’s cities, the UK may be seeing an end to diesel cars in the not-so-distant future.
Though they may be pocket friendly to run, diesel cars are not so eco-friendly and are being targeted by the government in a bid to cut air pollution in cities after failing to cut NO2 (nitrogen dioxide) emissions.
Following in French footsteps, the UK will look at eradicating all diesel cars in major cities in the future in an attempt to reduce the health damaging NO2 emissions. The current congestion charge for diesel drivers to enter the capital city may also be rising by a further £10. Starting with London, hopes are to cut emissions in all cities.
Do you travel less than 190 miles to work? You may end up having to hop on the train as another potentially proposed action within the radical transport plan.
Not only restricted to diesel, cars registered before 2006 may also be included in the transport and emissions crack down.
With such an emphasis on diesel as the root cause, what will the future hold for diesel cars?
