Fines in LEZ

Fines in LEZFines in LEZ

All cars lacking technical inspection stickers will be caught by surveillance cameras in Low Emission Zones (LEZ) from the third week of November, and violators will be fined $15, said head of Tehran’s traffic police Brigadier General Teymour Hosseini.

Currently, the cameras capture cars without technical inspection stickers and warnings are sent to violators, but they are not fined. The new measure has been taken to make drivers strictly follow the LEZ regulations, Alef News Agency reported.

Under the LEZ system, vehicles with higher emissions cannot enter the zones. In some low emission areas, vehicles with higher emissions have to pay steeper fines if they enter the LEZ.
