From 8 April 2019 if you travel in the ULEZ you will need to pay the daily ULEZ charge.
This is because your vehicle does not meet
This is the answer I get from the TfL online ULEZ checker when entering my Taxi's registration.
Try it for yourself here:-
As we all know Taxis are exempt from the charge, but it looks like someone needs to tell TfL.
They will say not to worry, but will we keep getting fines through the post that we will need to spend time appealing against, like with some boroughs who are continually sending out PCNs to Taxis photographed in bus lanes they are entitled to use.
Why can't TFL's website get this stuff right
Why is it we have to constantly complain about their continued woefully inadequacies.
TAXI LEAKS EXTRA BIT :
BLIMEY, THEY SLIPPED THAT ONE UNDER THE RADAR !!!
We were told that if you converted your diesel Taxi to a cleaner LPG engine set up, then the age limit would be extended from 15 years to 20.....apparently this is no longer the case.
TfLTPH have tweeted today that even if you make the 10 thousand pound investment, the age limit of your vehicle remains at 15 years....who in their right mind is going to invest £10k for the same age limit???
Taxi leaks editor Jim Thomas has asked TfLTPH to confirm their statement on Twitter that the proposed age limit on Euro 5 Taxis who have spent nearly £10k on a convert to LPG, will remain at 15 years?
This is the statement they replied with :
It would appear to us, that this Mayor and TfL are using every measure in their arsenal to go to war against the Taxi Trade as is and to reduced its number of drivers dramatically as in the proposals contained in the leaked Project Horizon, with a more manageable fleet of around 13,000 central London green badge drivers.
Here's a scenario for you to muse over:
A driver has an older Taxi (14years and six months) with just six months left on the road under current age limit rules. He decides to upgrade to LPG and is assured that he will be able to run the vehicle which will remain fit and proper for an extra 5 years untill it is 20 years old. He pays his £10k for the conversion.
Later this year the mayor holds his much publicised consultation, which we all know means he's not listening to anything we say and goes ahead with the new age limits.
Our driver now finds his cab is suddenly unfit for purpose and must come out of service.....meaning he has done his £10k in cold blood.
Please consider what is about to happen before having your Taxi converted to LPG, Khan is going to make it a very expensive mistake.
Another done deal perhaps from the people who are going the political route?
