Vandalism Damages London’s Clean-Air Zone Expansion Efforts

Cameras set up for London’s Ultra Low Emission Zone (ULEZ) expansion have been vandalized, according to the Metropolitan Police. The ULEZ, supported by Mayor Sadiq Khan, aims to reduce air pollution and address climate change. Critics argue that the daily fee for high-pollution vehicles is unjust. The police have recorded thefts and damage to ULEZ cameras, and are working with Transport for London to prevent further incidents. The ULEZ debate in London is divisive, and recent legal attempts to halt the expansion have failed. The ULEZ has also had political consequences, with the opposition party losing a by-election. To address concerns, Mayor Khan announced a £50 million extension of the ULEZ car scrappage scheme.
