It follows the precedent set by London in catching number plates of vehicles in the central zone of the city on cameras and checking against a database to identify those which fail to meet minimum emissions standards, then imposing charges – although the council has not yet announced the details. The move follows the recent announcement that the online vehicle checker service that supports the initiative has gone live. This has been developed by the Department for Transport (DfT) to help vehicle owners discover if they will be subject to the charges. Birmingham is also in line to impose a clean air scheme following the DfT’s development of the vehicle checker.
