A rethink of traffic law

German experts are calling for a complete reorganisation of German traffic law in order to make tomorrow's mobility more climate-friendly and safer. Only a uniform law that specifically anchors environmental and climate protection can achieve the newly formulated climate goals of the federal government in the transport sector.

Where are there environmental zones?

There are environmental zones in many regions of Europe. The EU has issued a directive that obliges its member states to keep the air clean. The environmental zones were therefore introduced by the individual states to protect their citizens from exhaust fumes and bad air. Some countries reduce only particulate matter, others additionally nitrogen oxides, ozone and sulphur dioxides or noise.
