Noise protection zone

Do I need stickers or registrations?

No special sticker or registration is required to enter the noise protection zone. Only the appropriate decibel value must be observed. A fine of 220 euros is due for violations.

For the other (environmental) zones of Austria a valid Austrian environmental sticker (Umwelt-Pickerl) is mandatory. Otherwise a fine of up to 2180 Euro is to be expected.

The sign for noise protection zone shows a red prohibition sign on which a motorcycle is shown. In addition, there is also a note on the maximum decibel limit for stationary noise.


In our Green-Zones App we have a detailed map of each low emission zone. So you can easily recognize the borders and avoid penalties.

Austria has a total of 8 different environmental zones. These are divided into normal environmental zones and noise protection zones: Außerfern, Burgenland, Linz, Lower Austria, Upper Austria, Styria, Tyrol, Vienna.


In our Green Zones App we have gathered together all the low emission zones in Europe and presented them clearly.

Good to know...

How zero-emission zones become a success

One of the biggest challenges facing the electrification of transport is the charging infrastructure. Even if more and more drivers opt for an electric model, it will fail in everyday life due to the lack of sockets on the road. One solution is sockets integrated into street lamps. In Berlin, they already wanted to test this by equipping some street lamps with plugs. In London and Arnhem, they are already further along.

Norway: 25 % luxury tax for electric cars

Anyone who has an electric car in Norway pays hardly any tax on it. This applied to 78 percent of new purchases made so far in 2021 and to 55 percent of purchases in the previous year. Norway thus leads the electric quota in Europe. The citizens of Norway will also have to hurry, because from 2025 onwards, no more passenger cars and light commercial vehicles with internal combustion engines will be allowed to drive in the country.

Uber & Co. are environmentally harmful

On the whole, driving services are considered environmentally friendly because they often use newer and therefore more economical vehicle models than private users with their cars. Researchers at Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh (USA) have now found out that they are not nearly as clean. This is mainly due to the empty runs, for which a lot of fuel is consumed without economic benefit.
