Green Number Plates for Zero-Emissions Vehicles

Posted in General News on Wednesday, December 9th, 2020

on 8th December the Department for Transport (DfT) introduced the first green number plates for zero-emission vehicles. The Department hopes this will raise awareness of the transition to zero-emissions vehicles and give the drivers of these vehicles access to local area benefits such as cheaper parking and free entry into zero emissions zones. This announcement reinforces the government’s commitment to improving air quality in UK towns and cities. It also supports the governments aim to end the sale of petrol and diesel vehicles by 2030. These new number plates can be retrofitted to existing vehicles providing they don’t produce any CO2 emissions from the tailpipe. Transport Minister Rachel Maclean said: “We are going further and faster than any other major economy to decarbonise transport, improving air quality in our towns and cities in the process and harnessing the power of clean, green technology to end the UK’s contribution to climate change by 2050. Not only will green number plates raise awareness of the increasing number of cleaner vehicles on our roads, they could also unlock a number of incentives for drivers. It’s clear there has never been a better time to make the switch to a zero-emission vehicle”.
