Many cities across the UK and Europe are pledging their support towards various sustainable initiatives, doing their bit to implement better policies and generally create awareness. This is especially the case when it comes to transport, with many councils flying the flag for eco travel alternatives.
The latest city to make efforts to combat climate change is Bristol. According to city officials, they will soon be banning diesel cars from travelling in its city zone; a change that is expected to be introduced as early as 2020.
Wanting to tackle ‘illegal levels of air pollution’, Bristol Council will fine all vehicles within the zone if they are diesel. Taxis and emergency service vehicles will however be except from these fines for obvious reasons.
To enforce this, Bristol will install a number plate recognition system; one similar to the system used in London to manage congestion charges.
Mayor Marvin Rees said that the city had an obligation to improve its air pollution whilst setting an example to neighbouring towns and cities.
Mr Rees told the council: “We have a moral, we have an ecological and we have a legal duty to clean up the air we breathe.”
