Environmental zone ZBE

Do I need stickers or registrations?

To enter the low emission zone, each vehicle concerned needs either a registration (foreigners) or a Distintivo-Ambiental (Spanish vehicles). Otherwise, a fine of 200 euros to 1800 euros must be expected.

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.

The beginning and end of the environmental zones are marked with signs. This shows a red circle as a prohibition sign with the remark Zona Baixes Emissions" (low emission zone).  In addition, there is also a reference to the Distintivo-Ambiental stickers and which entrances are allowed.


In our Green Zones App we have a detailed map of each low emission zone. So you can easily see the boundaries and avoid penalties.

Spain has a total of 7 different environmental zones. These differ in ZBE zones, ZEZ zones and ZPA zones: Barcelona, Madrid, Seville, Valladolid, Valencia.


In our Green Zones App we have gathered together all the low emission zones in Europe and presented them clearly.

Tesla with filter against “bioweapons”

Lucky those who find themselves in a Tesla Model Y during a bioweapons attack! Because then it is not unlikely that you will survive -- as long as you don't get out. At least that's what Elon Musk says. On closer inspection, however, Tesla's new gadget turns out to be just a normal filter against fine dust, albeit a very effective one.

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.
