BVRLA welcomes Mayor's delay of Direct Vision Standard enforcement

Transport for London has today confirmed that no charges will be payable or enforced for non-compliant vehicles under the new Direct Vision Standard and the new Low Emission Zone until at least the end of February 2021.

BVRLA Chief Executive Gerry Keaney said: “We are pleased to have received notice from Transport for London earlier today confirming a delay to the enforcement of new rules under London’s Direct Vision Standard and the new Low Emission Zone, which both come into force on 26 October.

"This will provide welcome relief to a freight industry that is focused on COVID-19 - keeping supply chains moving and surviving the economic impacts of the lockdown.

"The Mayor must continue to liaise with the sector and be ready to delay these schemes still further depending on how the sector and the wider economy are able to recover from the current crisis.”
