Motorists have their old polluting cars crushed in exchange for £3,000 worth of alternative transport
Motorists are handing over their old polluting cars to be crushed for scrap in exchange for £3,000 worth of alternative travel arrangements in what is the first scheme of its kind in the UK.
The pioneering offer has already been taken up by six environmentally-conscious car owners – with dozens more lining up to join.
The pilot initiative has been set up by Transport for West Midlands (TfWM) in Coventry where drivers of ageing, high emission vehicles have been quick to take up the offer.
With £1 million funding being provided through the region’s Future Transport Zone initiative, there is capacity to take 250 high-polluting vehicles off our streets over the next two years.
