Do I need stickers or registrations?
How do I recognize the low emission zone?
Are there other low emission zones in Germany?
Yes, a lot of them. With over 80 different environmental zones, Germany has one of the most in Europe.
In our Green Zones App we have gathered together all the low emission zones in Europe and presented them clearly.
Is there a sticker for electric cars?
What advantages do I have with an E-sticker?
The E-sticker gives you various advantages. Depending on the municipality, there are various advantages, such as the use of bus lanes, free parking on the road and at electricity charging points, as well as the possible use of otherwise closed roads.
Do I need a green environmental sticker despite the E-sticker?
Yes, every car, no matter whether it is being driven on with petrol, diesel or electricity, requires a green environmental sticker according to the law. The E-sticker also entitles you to additional advantages over non-electric vehicles. The 35th BImSchV does not provide a separate paragraph for electric vehicles, which regulates them as an exception. Therefore: If an electric vehicle drives into a green environmental zone without a green sticker, a fine of 80 € + approx. 25 € handling fee must be expected.
Good to know...
All current driving bans and further information are available in our Green-Zones App.
It sounds like the setting of a science fiction film: car-free city centres, vegetable and fruit gardens on the roofs of residential buildings, streets interspersed with green spaces.
Among the most devastating climate pests, the car takes third place. Traffic is therefore one of the main factors in climate change, and the CO2 emitted by the combustion engine must be permanently reduced.
The news hit like a bomb yesterday, and the effects could be far-reaching for other cities and municipalities: Leipzig passes judgement on driving ban in Reutlingen.
Green-Zones not only wants to provide information and offer solutions with the environmental stickers or app. We want to get to the bottom of the problem. Where others only report facts, we put our heart into it!
Environmental zones and environmental tracks are currently hanging like a sword of Damocles over several municipalities and cities in Germany. After the displeasure about the three already installed environmental tracks is growing in Düsseldorf, last week the representatives of the cities of Bonn and Dortmund reached an out-of-court (for the time being) agreement with Deutsche Umwelthilfe in Münster, Westphalia.
For 25 years now, the air quality index of the “Atmo France” institute has not changed. This index therefore does not take into account certain pollutants or PM2.5, although scientists consider the smaller particles more dangerous than its “big brother” PM10. According to the WHO, pollution due to the particles of PM2.5 should not exceed 10µ/m³ per year on average.
At first it was delayed for months, but now it is happening quickly.
Green-Zones participates to the citizen science project of air quality measurements “BerlinAiR – NO2-Atlas". Our team deals daily with issues related to environmental zones, air quality and traffic restrictions. For this reason, we have decided to actively support this project. The campaign was initiated by the “Environmental Chemistry and Air Pollution Control “ faculty of the Technical University of Berlin (TU Berlin).
We are pleased to announce that at the beginning of this year we were able to enter into cooperation with the largest Polish association of the road transport industry.
The situation in Stuttgart around environmental zones and diesel driving bans is anything but clear even at the beginning of 2020. There is unanimous confusion and general chaos.
