Do I need stickers or registrations?

To enter the low emission zone, each vehicle concerned requires a valid registration. Otherwise a fine of 150 Euro to 350 Euro is to be expected.

The beginning and end of the environmental zones are marked with signs. This shows a red circle as a prohibition sign with a vehicle causing emissions. Who exactly is allowed to enter or not is not indicated by the entry sign.


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.

There are 3 low emission zones in Belgium: Antwerp, Brussels and Ghent


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

Good to know...

All current driving bans and further information are available in our Green-Zones App.


Truck industry starts its own electric offensive

The major truck manufacturers have joined forces to build a comprehensive charging network for trucks in Europe. Since politicians are only making very slow progress with improving the infrastructure, they are now taking the challenge into their own hands. This is urgently needed, because soon there will be no more trucks with combustion engines in some environmental zones.

What is the Green-Zones App?

The Green-Zones App helps you to avoid huge fines and to keep track of environmental zones and driving bans. And all this without prior registration. Maybe you want to go on holiday privately, or you have a company that crosses several European countries with vans and trucks. There are many things to consider here: Where are the environmental zones? Is your vehicle affected by the rules? And do you perhaps need a sticker or registration before entering?
