Question

In light of the proposed ULEZ restrictions, can the Mayor give a definitive guarantee that the London to Brighton Veteran Car Rally, and associated events will not be affected? Owners of these veteran vehicles practice around London in the days before the event, and give much pleasure to Londoners who can enjoy seeing these magnificent examples of engineering.

Answer for ULEZ restrictions

Answered By: 
The Mayor

I am a strong advocate of classic events in London and I recognise the contribution they make to London's vitality.

The ULEZ proposal includes an exemption for historic vehicles registered before 1 January 1973, which is consistent with the existing Low Emission Zone.

I hope this gives the reassurance that the Brighton Veteran Car Rally was hoping for.
