PARK NOW can help Councils make a positive impact in maintaining air quality
Driving cleaner air with Emissions Based Charging
Air quality in towns and cities across the UK is a major health issue and vehicle emissions are a significant contributor.
With EU pressure to improve this, several Councils have now introduced RingGo Emissions Based Parking (EBP) to help change motorist’s behavior, reduce vehicle pollution and improve air quality.
This is being achieved quickly and easily with none of the complex, time consuming and costly infrastructure required for low and zero emission zones.
How does it work ?
Using the vehicle registration, combined with information from the DVLA, the solution automatically varies parking tariffs, based on the emissions of the vehicle being parked.
In August 2018, the City of London launched the most sophisticated version of Emissions Based Parking yet, adjusting parking tariffs according to the emissions, fuel type and age of each vehicle.
The solution mirrors the European Commission’s Euro 6 standard:
- Environmentally-friendly cars pay less
- Newer, cleaner petrol and diesels pay a standard price, and
- The most polluting vehicles are charged more
