You are not the first person to be ignored by RBWM. Is there a question answer area on their website?

I'm puzzled about the remarks from Bagheera:

"Note that if you do not get off the M4 for the M25, getting off at the Heathrow Junction will incur the Emission Charge if your vehicle is not exempt - even if you just go round the roundabout and back.  However, the roundabout at Junction 3 is not in the Low Emission Zone so, rather perversely, it will be cheaper to go on to Junction 3 and turn round if you have missed the M25 junction by mistake."

If you download the maps (and detailed sheets)  from TFL, they show a corridor of the M4 up to and including Junction 3 (Hillingdon Parkway) which is excluded from the LEZ.  The boundaries are clearly marked to show a circuit of the roundabouts would be excluded from the LEZ.  Is TFL misbehaving?




Just checked our own vehicles and they are exempt - so all a bit academic at the moment

The Problem Solving Team, Neighbourhood teams and Area CID have had some really good results, when it comes to tackling County Drugs Lines, over the past few months.
They had another one last Thursday... acting on intelligence provided to a PCSO by a concerned member of the public, the Problem Solving Team Inspector and a PC stopped a vehicle. Two individuals were arrested on suspicion of being concerned in the supply of heroin, cocaine and for possessing a knife.
After a 21 hour shift, drugs testing, interviews, house searches, phone downloads and a lot of coffee - the Problem Solving Team charged and remanded one of the individuals to court for all 3 offences. He plead guilty at court the next day, and is now at her majesties pleasure awaiting sentencing.
The investigation is ongoing in relation to the other male who was released under investigation.
We rely heavily on your calls, web reports and emails about what you’ve seen and heard. Please do keep them coming - together we will make our Neighbourhood safer more enjoyable places to live.
Thank you
PS Ryan Powell
Problem Solving Neighbourhood Team

It is based on the emission criteria at the time of manufacture. The 2006 diesel I drove until Christmas would come under the standard limit but above the ultra low one.  Our 13 year old petrol car meets both.

The French have refused to give details for some time - this applies to parking and speeding fines as well. The UK has refused to give details of UK registered cars to the French in retaliation

As I understand it, the Low Emission Zone does not apply to private vehicles? Am I right?

The opening statement on the Low Emission Zone website states that:The Low Emission Zone (LEZ) was set up to encourage the most polluting heavy diesel vehicles driving in the Capital to become cleaner.
It has been in force for sometime and my take on it was that it was older diesel HGV's. I didn't think it likely that a properly maintained car would have the ability to be as polluting due to the size of the engine.

If no friendly php programmer comes forward, how much would it cost to have the discussion board reloaded from the server?

From what little I remember of IT people doing such things at work, it actually took very little effort, just machine time while things uploaded.
