UK third for Low Emission Zone’s

UK third for Low Emission Zone’s

After Italy and Germany with 253 and 82 Low Emission Zones respectively, Britain is third in the World with 22 special congestion reduction zones to minimise dangerous emissions.

After Britain comes France and the Netherlands both with 16 low emission zones each and then Spain with just 8. However, it is worth noting that the London Ultra Low emission zone covers a large proportion of London with a high population density and nearly 4 million people living within the zone.

According to the Clean Cities Campaign report from July, there are currently 320No. LEZs in existence across Europe, with plans to add 200 more zones by 2025.
