Danish low emission zones explained

There are four environmental zones in Denmark. These are located in the capital Copenhagen, as well as in Aalborg, Aarhus and Odense. All these low emission zones are permanently valid and affect diesel buses, vans and trucks, i.e. vehicles of classes M2 and M3 as well as N1, N2 and N3. While until the middle of last year there were still environmental badges with which the vehicles had to be marked, there is now registration and electronic controls.

Belgian low emission zones explained

There are three low emission zones in Belgium, namely in the capital Brussels, as well as in Antwerp and Ghent. All three low emission zones are permanently valid. Vehicles need to be registered to enter. Belgian and also Dutch vehicles are exempt. These are entered directly into the register when the vehicle is registered. There are two different registrations for the three environmental zones. They also have different regulations.

Noise costs billions

Noise costs the French state more than 150 billion euros every year. Physical and mental illnesses, but also the depreciation of property are included here. Traffic is an immense contributor to noise. A culture of noise management should help.
