"Logic and critical thinking are the hallmarks of a free society, while rote memorization and repetition are the dictator's counterfeit." -- Michael Rivero

Oxford, UK, was one of the first to announce a scheme where car owners will be fined for driving outside of their local area.  The first low traffic neighbourhoods (“LTNs”) were introduced in Church Cowley, Temple Cowley and Florence Park areas in March 2021.  These LTNs are collectively known as the east Oxford LTNs.

Despite receiving a backlash to their unpopular plans, the council is pressing forward.

“Work starts today (26 February) on Oxford streets to prepare for six traffic filters as part of a trial approved by Oxfordshire County Council’s cabinet in November 2022,” Oxfordshire County Council announced.

To stop prohibited vehicles driving without a permit, the traffic filters or “bus gates” will be monitored by automatic number plate recognition (“ANPR”) cameras. “Residents in Oxford and some areas just outside the city will be able to apply for a permit allowing them to drive through the traffic filters on up to 100 days per year,” the council said.
