UK Joint Air Quality Unit (JAQU)
The JAQU is a UK government unit set up by the Department for Transport (DfT) and the Department for the Environment, Farming and Rural Affairs (DEFRA), with the aim of delivering the national plans to improve air quality. One of the ways of improving air quality is by operating Clean Air Zones (CAZ) in a number of cities and towns, and some of these will charge the most polluting vehicles if they wish to enter the CAZ.
