Glasgow's Low Emission Zone

Glasgow's Low Emission Zone

Scotland's first ever Low Emission Zone (LEZ) came into effect in Glasgow city centre on 31 December 2018.

A Low Emission Zone is an area where a person may not drive a vehicle which does not meet a specified emission standard. LEZs are intended to reduce pollution levels and improve air quality in areas where standards are not being met.

Whilst Glasgow's LEZ will target those streets currently experiencing the highest levels of pollution, the benefits will be felt throughout Glasgow as cleaner vehicles travel into the city centre from outlying areas.
