The Ultra Low Emission Zone emission models do not account for a mode shift from pre-Euro 3 motorcycles to cars. Transport for London’s monitoring indicates that circa 3 per cent of motorcycles that enter the zone are pre-Euro 3 and it is not expected that shifting to a car would be a common rider response. However, where that does occur, it will not have a significant effect on traffic or congestion as pre-Euro 3 motorcycles make up a small proportion of overall vehicle numbers.
