Oxford has proposed an ambitious plan to turn its city center into the world’s first Zero Emissions Zone (ZEZ), an effort that would require banning of all non-electric vehicles from six streets in the vicinity by as soon as 2020.

The scheme, aims to squeeze nitrogen dioxide levels in the historic city by three-quarters by 2035, writes Independent.

While setting up a full-fledged ZEZ in Oxford city center could cost approximately $18.5 million to local transport businesses, including bus operators, haulage companies, and taxi firms, public response has largely been positive for the scheme aimed at curbing air pollution, notes Futurism
