Transport for London (TfL) publishes quarterly ULEZ factsheets, which are available in the Finance, Operations and Performance section of its website at:

https://tfl.gov.uk/corporate/publications-and-reports/ultra-low-emission-zone#on-this-page-7

The factsheet includes information about all vehicles seen using the zone and this is broken down further into:

Transport for London issued warning notices rather than Penalty Charge Notices for the first four weeks following expansion, between 25 October and 22 November 2021. The table below shows the number of PCNs issued for non-compliance with ULEZ between 23 November 2021 and 31 January 2022, and the number which have been paid as at 22 February 2022. It should be noted some of these PCNs are not yet due for payment, and some are on hold while drivers exercise their right to challenge the PCNs.
