An anti-ULEZ dinosaur has been spotted in south east London and Crayford holding a protesting sign alongside a ULEZ camera van which is being blocked by a flatbed truck.

On the surface of the flatbed truck is a warning to motorists written in yellow paint which reads “ULEZ VAN.”

The person in the orange dinosaur suit was seen in Perry Lane, Crayford on September 27 as well as at other locations.

Protesters across London have begun using methods to try and block ULEZ cameras from reading motorists' number plates.

TfL has begun deploying ULEZ vans following the damage caused to the stationary cameras, but some protesters have taken to using some creative approaches to try and render the cameras ineffective.

Two large vans were seen sandwiching in a van, covering the ULEZ camera due to their large sides earlier this week in Bexleyheath.

Just last week, more ULEZ cameras across south east London and Dartford were spotted damaged – but this time the whole pole have been taken down along with the traffic lights.

A picture taken on Crayford Way in Dartford shows a post cut in the middle, causing it to topple onto the floor.

Another camera pole was seen cut in Biggin Hill, Bromley, also with the inside wires cut on September 18.

People who drive in the zone in a vehicle that does not meet minimum emissions standards are required to pay a £12.50 daily fee or risk a £180 fine, reduced to £90 if paid within 14 days.

The Mayor of London says that this will bring the health benefits of cleaner air to all Londoners.

In recent weeks, reports of vandalism to the ULEZ cameras have included cutting of the camera’s wires, painting over the lens, or completely removing the device.

The Metropolitan Police are dedicating a “significant amount” of resources to tackling ultra-low emission zone camera-related crime, the force’s commissioner has said.

There were 510 crime reports relating to ULEZ cameras logged between April 1 and the end of August.

Two arrests have been made, with one person charged and bailed and the other case discontinued by the Crown Prosecution Service, the force said.

There have been approximately 160 reports of cameras being stolen and 350 cameras being damaged, according to Met Police figures.

The actual number of cameras affected may be higher as one report can represent multiple offences.

A Transport for London spokesperson said last week that camera vandalism will not stop the Ulez operating London-wide.

They added: “All vandalised cameras are replaced as soon as possible.

“We have an extensive camera network which is sufficient to support the effective operation of the scheme.”
