London's license plate-reading Traffic Cameras have been damaged, disconnected, or stolen by vigilantes opposing the city's new anti-pollution charge on older vehicles. The vandalism by a group called the Blade Runners highlights the strong emotions surrounding the implementation of the Ultra Low Emission Zone (ULEZ). Supporters argue that the ULEZ will improve air quality and reduce pollution-related deaths, while critics view it as a cash grab that unfairly penalizes suburban residents who rely on their cars for work and essential travel. The opposition to the ULEZ has become a political flashpoint and could be exploited in next year's national election.
