Car tax zone may be increasing traffic and pollution as drivers say 'increase is obvious'

Coaches, buses, trucks and lorries are all charged £100, although drivers can apply for exemptions.

Minibuses, vans, campervans and private hire vehicles will be charged £9 per day, unless they meet the emissions standards in place.
