Today’s Solutions: November 30, 2022

While London has been busy implementing restrictions on gas-powered cars, the city of Bristol wants to take it one step further by banning diesel cars from the city center. That would make it the first UK city to implement such a ban.

Under the city council’s proposals, diesel vehicles will be prohibited from entering a central area of the city between 7 am and 3 pm every day. The diesel ban area would sit at the heart of a clean air zone (CAZ) where polluting commercial vehicles, such as taxis, would be charged to enter.

Similar schemes have received flak in London because ordinary people are being penalized who cannot afford to switch over to an electric car, but Bristol has seemed to learn from this. Along with the ban, the city would also launch a car scrapping scheme to help diesel car owners buy an alternative vehicle.
