The free use of classic cars in Central London

6

I the undersigned call on the London Assembly/Mayor's Office/Transport for London to ensure there is an exemption for all historic vehicles should any ultra low emissions zone be introduced to the capital.

Given the huge contribution made to the UK by historic vehicles (financially, in preserving Britain's history and in feelgood factor) and the negligible pollution attributable to classic cars, I urge:

  • That historic vehicle owners and users both living inside and outside the zone continue to be permitted the unrestricted use of their vehicles within the zone.
  • That total exemption is granted to any historic vehicle registered within the ULEZ.
  • That all historic events and shows – such as the London to Brighton Veteran Car Run and Regents Street Motor Show – continue unaffected by the ULEZ and that exemptions also be made for any future historic vehicle events.
  • That classic car-related businesses and especially those located within the proposed ULEZ (classic car showrooms/workshops/auction houses, wedding car hire companies etc) be permitted to continue using the zone without restriction.

Are we in danger of forgetting what London is about? Please make this not happen.

I work with Aston Martins, and we have a branch in London, so our business in London would be ruined.

Just because we simply wouldn't be able to drive the DB 4/5/6 's into London! Ludicrous.

I can't find this on the government ePetition website.

If it's not on the government website, signing up to this is just a waste of time.

How are we defining 'classic' for this purpose? Tax exempt? That's my '88 bike, '91 CX and '78 Fiat camper (all insured on classics policies) buggered, then. And I live in London.

If classics are exempt, Maybe a lot of city dwellers will buy a cheap exempt classic vehicle to avoid charges / Push up cost of classics?
