Avoiding Low Emissions Zone fines
I have a suggestion. I live in Scotland, south of Glasgow. Glasgow City Council have decided to create a “Low Emissions Zone” which comes into action before the end of this year. It is intended that other local authorities will follow this example of banning any Diesel or Petrol car which does not meet the Euro 6 emissions standard. I understand that London, Edinburgh, Birmingham and Manchester are all intending to introduce similar low emission zones in the very near future.
My car is an 2007 Volvo XC70 D5 AWD, it meets the Euro 4 emissions standard. Generally speaking all cars over four years old will be banned from entering the new Glasgow Low Emissions Zone, that is an awful lot of cars facing heavy fines for even inadvertently entering one of these new zones.
My suggestion is that when a TomTom user is planning a route, the system could provide options to avoid motorways, toll roads, ferries etc. Would it be possible to update your systems to include the avoidance of “Low Emission Zones” and also to provide alarms similar to your current speed trap alarms.
