Nexus launches guide to help fleets avoid ULEZ fines

Waze to route non-compliant vehicles around ULEZ

Nexus Vehicle Rental has launched a free ‘Glovebox Guide’ with advice on how to avoid fines while operating within London’s Ultra Low Emissions Zone (ULEZ).

It alerts drivers to the impending extension to the zone and highlights how vehicles can be registered to operate within the ULEZ without facing a Penalty Charge Notice (PCN).

David Brennan, CEO at Nexus Vehicle Rental, said: “Whilst we can look to London for championing cleaner air in UK cities, we cannot ignore the fact many of our business customers are still incurring expensive fines due to a lack of awareness of ULEZ regulations.

“We salute the Mayor’s effort for taking the most polluting vehicles off our roads but recognise the new regulations are particularly impacting the operational efficiency of logistics fleets using older vans and HGVs in central London. Many of these fleets require a time critical mobility solution and haven’t had the opportunity to upgrade their vehicles.”

Revenue generated by the ULEZ has already exceeded £40m, with more than £10m coming from PCNs.

The planned ULEZ expansion will take place in two years (October 25 2021) when it will stretch to the North and South Circular roads.

The ULEZ charges £12.50 per day for the most polluting vehicles entering the zone and those that fail to pay can face fines of £160 for cars, vans and motorbikes, and £1,000 for lorries.
