Sulphur dioxide is a colourless gas with a pungent odour. In high concentrations it is very harmful to humans, flora and fauna. Fortunately, however, sulphur dioxide emissions are steadily decreasing.
Last year, the development of pollutant emissions at 30 km/h was measured on five stretches of road in Berlin. A decrease in pollution was measured on these heavily frequented streets, only on Potsdamer Strasse no decrease could be detected. Now the 30 km/h zones could be abolished, but the transport senator has a different plan.
For years, the Tyrolean government has been denouncing that the Brenner Pass is too cheap for freight traffic. Now a study has confirmed that many trucks themselves take detours in order to use the cheap Brenner Pass. This causes congestion and traffic jams on the motorway.

Nitrogen oxide (NOx) is a collective term for gaseous compounds, the most important of which are nitrogen monoxide (NO) and nitrogen dioxide (NO2). Together with hydrocarbons, nitrogen oxides are responsible for the formation of ozone. They also contribute to the formation of particulate matter.
In Baden-Württemberg, measures against particulate matter and nitrogen pollution in the air are taking effect. Ludwigsburg is the only exception.
Since August 2020, the shopping street Friedrichstrasse in Berlin's Mitte district has been a zone closed to cars, with a double bike lane running through the middle. According to the ideas of Berlin's new transport senator Jarasch (Greens), this zone is to be considerably extended.
