Looks like another way to get money out of car drivers

Could be coming to a town near you starts in the big city's and then filters out to other towns as easy money maker for the councils

Wonder of they'd make an exception if you said you couldn't turn the engine off 'cos it was going through a DPF regen?

A very good point. The authorities/police don't nick phone users, motorway lane lurkers, zig-zag line pedestrian crossing parkers, etc. etc. Are they really going to hang around long enough to see if your running engine is 'unreasonable', then do all the form filling for a prosecution? I don't think so. And what about a portable generator?
