TfL Ref: FOI-1835-1920
Thank you for your request received by Transport for London (TfL) on 18th September 2019 asking for information about the Ultra Low Emission Zone (ULEZ).
Your request has been considered in accordance with the requirements of the Freedom of Information Act and our information access policy.
Specifcally you asked:
“Can you please let me know when the ULEZ started operating on the 1st of April 2019, how long was the warning period? I would like to know the date and month the warning period ended?”
As the scheme was so new, between its inception in April and to the 10th May 2019 we issued warning notices rather than penalties to drivers seen in the Ultra Low Emission Zone in non-compliant vehicles. A small number of penalties were issued in error during this period which were subsequently cancelled.
If this is not the information you are looking for please do not hesitate to contact me.
Please see the attached information sheet for details of your right to appeal as well as information on copyright and what to do if you would like to re-use any of the information we have disclosed.
