ULEZ is a designated area in London, established in 2020, aimed at reducing harmful emissions. Drivers of vehicles that do not meet minimum emissions standards must pay a daily fee of £12.50 to enter the zone.

The ULEZ program allows London residents, small business owners, private entrepreneurs, and charitable organizations to scrap vehicles that do not meet environmental standards and receive grants in return.
