What is a ZBE zone?
The ZBE zones (Zona Baixes Emissions), are fixed zones that can be identified by traffic signs. They are designed to reduce air pollution in Spanish cities quickly and permanently.
A permanent ZBE zone is a zone in which permanent and fixed traffic restrictions apply, such as speed limits and other restrictions, and in which entry is regulated by a system of stickers. Furthermore, in the course of the next few years, stickers may be gradually removed from the system, so that vehicles with these stickers will no longer be able to enter the zones.
How do I recognize the low emission zone?
Are there other low emission zones in France?
