Do what I say, not what I do
The Bristol City Council recently proposed a ban for all diesel vehicles from their city centre. Despite the planned ban, the council has acquired a fleet of 64 new diesel transporters for its own fleet.
This is the kind of initiative that will not help support new technologies or our environment, even if it benefits the council wallets for a brief period. Furthermore, this showcases how many loopholes urban environmental regulations can have: The ban would only apply to privately-owned diesel vehicles, starting in 2021. It seems the council may not be entirely on track to achieve clean air compliance by 2025, as they had planned.
