  6. Electric vehicles 'don't solve congestion problem'

    Dave Wade

    BBC Local Live

    AA president Edmund King said giving separate rules for electric cars would "baffle" drivers.

    Quote Message: "Incentives for electric vehicles such as use of bus lanes or preferential parking are good short term catalysts but when EVs become mainstream congestion will still be the big issue. We are still somewhat baffled as to how EVs can realistically be given priority at traffic lights" from Edmund King AA president

    BBC Local Live

    Work on Nottingham's Eco-Expressway - a six-mile route just for electric vehicles has already begun.

    Nottingham won a successful bid for £6.1m to build the lane which will be open late next year and connect Gedling to the east of the city.

    But Defra's changes will give electric cars even more priority in the city.

    The new rules might even mean electric vehicles get preferential parking spaces and lower charges in a bid to encourage people to use them.

  9. Electric cars could be exempt from city road rules

    Dave Wade

    BBC Local Live

    Nottingham and Derby could soon be changing the rules of the road for electric car drivers.

    They're two of five cities designated to be clean air zones by 2020 because of high levels of air pollution.

    Defra has now said that electric vehicles in the five cities could be given priority at traffic lights and exempted from one-way systems.

    The government's planned clean air zones are intended to encourage drivers to choose less-polluting electric cars.

    Massive congratulations to Paralympic swimmers Ollie Hynd and Charlotte Henshaw, who are set to receive the Freedom of Mansfield after their successes in Rio.

    Ollie, who won two golds and a silver in the pool this summer, said it'll be a memorable moment.

    "To have an honour of this level is fantastic but for it to be from my hometown where I grew up and had all my training it makes it that little bit more special," he said.
