Berlin: Abolition of 30 km/h zones

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.

New rules for low emission zones in January 2022

The new year is barely a few days old, but already there are important changes in the environmental zones in many European cities. Often the changes only affect individual cities, but sometimes they affect entire countries. But some tightening has been postponed, on the one hand because pollutants have decreased due to the pandemic-related decrease in traffic, and on the other hand because drivers want to be given enough time to adjust to innovations in difficult times. Green-Zones® lists the new rules for January.
