Herts Conservatives Refuse to allow ULEZ Signs in Hertfordshire

6 Sep 2023

Liberal Democrats have attacked Herts Conservative’s refusal to allow ULEZ signs in the county saying that it will only increase the chances of Herts residents with older cars inadvertently entering the ULEZ area and being charged or fined. At the last meeting of Herts County Council Liberal Democrat councillors proposed that the council should engage with the Mayor of London to attempt to negotiate a better scrappage scheme, including for Herts residents, and improvements to public transport but the Conservatives refused to do this.

Liberal Democrat County Councillor Steve Jarvis said, “Refusing to allow ULEZ signs in Hertfordshire is not going to stop the scheme going ahead. What it will do is make it more difficult for Herts residents who have non-compliant cars and vans to know exactly where the ULEZ starts and to avoid entering it if they don’t need to. The Conservative leader says he does not agree with the charge but his petty refusal to allow signs can only result in more Herts residents paying the charge – or being fined for failing to do so. That might suit his political purposes but it won’t help the people affected.”
