I'm about 18 miles south of all that, and am in and around Bristol regularly.
Probably means goodbye to my Golf TDI.

If their proposed scrappage scheme of £2000 extended 600 yards over the border from North Somerset
into Somerset...., I'd grab it with both hands. ( Assuming, that is, the offer was cash, rather than
conditional on buying a brand new car )

Absolute nonsese. So my Euro 6 Volvo V40 wouldn't be welcome but I could take my 16 year old 3.0 V6 ST220. :roll:

Bit like the London LEZ thing, I can take my 15 year old Volvo petrol into that London but not the Citroen HDi.

WHY THOUGH are there still shitty-arsed Black Cabs in London spewing out visible pollution....and they're exempt from paying the ULEZ charge :roll:
Cars in my care:

2005 Volvo S40 T5 German Diesel botherer with new tyre grippage
2010 Citroen C4 1.6 HDi turbo de' explosions, bizarre gearbox model
2010 Renner Twingo refreshingly simple

This is only going to get worse. I seriously thought about a petrol car before I bought the Citroen in view of the growing number of UK/European cities banning diesels. Probably have to go petrol, leccy or hybrid next time.

Not that I want to, but taking my miniature camper van into the ULEZ would cost me £100.
It's some comfort that it's £165 a year road tax and the Dartford crossing c/w car+trailer is £2.50

Utter BS. I am going to buy a 1970's Lada with knackered piston rings and drive it around Bristol.

That'll be the real death of High Street. What a way to reduce footfall.

It's all knee jerk stuff, the councils want to be seen to be doing something about polution and, now we've all realised* diesels are dirty polluting bastards, they're the easiest target. What's the saying? Cleaning your windows while your roof is on fire?
