Good luck with that one. Are there enough low emission buses, taxis,
delivery vehicles, and so on to make it even remotely practical?


Buses and taxis, yes — all new London taxis are PHEVs, with quite a decent
zero emissions range. Some delivery vehicles are now electric (and I'm not
talking about milk floats), and presumably more will be by the time this
starts.

Presumably emergency vehicles will be exempted.
