New low emission zones to affect motorcyclists

London Mayor Boris Johnson has announced new ultra low emission zones which will first take effect in the city of London. These new zones will be for low emission vehicles only but Boris Johnson has stated that other vehicles entering the areas will be charged fees. So how does this affect motorcyclists?. Well it has been confirmed that for motorcycle riders to enter these new zones, they will be charged a fee of £12.50 per day but this only applies to motorcycles that happen to be older than thirteen years old. The reason behind this is that older motorcycles give out more in pollution that what new models do. Interestingly, reports have revealed that only one percent of nitrous oxide emissions are caused by motorcycles. So are you a motorcyclist and agree or disagree with these new changes brought to the city of London?.
