Glasgow City Council makes almost £500,000 from LEZ fines

  • Glasgow City Council collected £478,560 in fines from the Low Emission Zone between June and September, with over 20,000 fines issued since the LEZ's introduction on June 1.
  • Fines for non-compliant vehicles in the LEZ start at £60 but double for repeated offenses, and fines were reduced by 50% if paid within 14 days. The council plans to use the money earned from the LEZ to reduce air pollution and meet climate change targets.
  • The Court of Session in Edinburgh has ruled that the LEZ is lawful and appropriate after a legal challenge from a local business owner, William Paton. Similar pay structures will be implemented in other Low Emission Zones.
