Route to Birmingham's Clean Air Zone

The Government has instructed local authorities across the UK with implementing Clean Air Zones to improve air quality. Unlike a congestion charge, which charges every single vehicle to pass through a certain area, Clean Air Zones will only charge the most high-polluting vehicles to drive within the boundary.

Birmingham has chosen to implement a Category D Clean Air Zone but will not include motorcycles.
