Responding to the expansion of ULEZ, John O’Connell, chief executive of the TaxPayers' Alliance, said:
“The expansion of ULEZ is bad news for motorists in London and beyond.
“As hard-pressed drivers face coughing up for yet another levy, motorists elsewhere fear that similar schemes will spread to their areas.
“Local authorities across the UK should rule out implementing similar regressive cash grabs.”
