Mayor Boris Johnson is to put next phase of low emission zone on hold.
A few CCC members turned out, complete with gas masks to join the Lib Dem protest outside St Pancras Station. It would be good to have better air to gasp in when cycling fast, particularly in this cold weather.
The Mayor announced last week that he was cancelling the third phase of the low emission zone, which was introduced last year by Ken Livingstone as a way to cut harmful emissions by encouraging the replacement of high polluting vans and lorries with new models that met the required emission standards.
The scheme currently targets buses, coaches, and the most polluting lorries over 3.5 tonnes. Failure to meet the required emissions standards leads to a £200 daily charge, or a £1,000 daily fine.
