Today’s court decision confirms due process was used in Sadiq Khan’s ULEZ expansion efforts.
Commenting, Bob Bull – Chairman of the ABD – said:
“The Alliance of British Drivers (ABD) is disappointed with today’s court judgment allowing expansion of the Ultra Low Emission Zone (ULEZ) to proceed.
However, Judicial Review merely confirms that ‘due process’ was used. It does not examine the merits of the decision, which received overwhelming opposition in the consultation.
Being charged £12.50 a day will have a disastrous effect on over 300,000 drivers and motorcyclists in outer London; also over a million more who visit London and contribute significantly to its economy.
Sadiq Khan once pledged not to expand ULEZ if opposition was overwhelming. It was – by 73 per cent to 27 per cent. The Mayor should honoured his promise.
He has no democratic mandate for this extreme expansion. He will shortly find out how ‘overwhelming’ the response will be from a public fed up with being taken for granted.”
