In order to avoid diesel driving bans, the city on the Main is introducing a 40 km/h speed zone in the entire city centre. If this does not have any effect, unpopular driving bans may be imposed in the middle of next year.
In all 20 arrondissements within the city motorway, the speed will be reduced in the new year. This is to improve air quality, but also to reduce noise pollution and traffic accidents.
The current lockdown leads to a decrease in mobility of up to one fifth compared to the previous year. For such situations with low traffic volume, temporary environmental zones could also make sense in Germany.
The measure for better air, controversial in Germany, is becoming increasingly popular in France. Grenoble has had the country's first eco-lane since October. The lane in Lyon has been active since yesterday.
According to Mayor Keller, the environmental lanes that have been active for about two years cause congestion and emissions. Therefore, he is abolishing the lanes - making diesel driving bans very likely.
The driving ban for older diesel vehicles has no effect on air quality. Also because only two streets are affected. Will this result in larger diesel driving ban zones?
The death of a London girl was caused by excessive air pollution. This legal decision could be groundbreaking for transport policy in the UK and Europe.
Drivers are being asked to pay another additional £3.5 per day to keep public transport out of bankruptcy. This is despite the fact that there is already a congestion charge and the low emission zone charge for drivers in London.
An eco-lane will be installed in the French metropolis before Christmas. It is intended to reduce traffic through carpooling and thus save more than 22,000 tonnes of CO2 annually.
After the industry and experts from some universities, politicians are now also critical of the stricter regulations, which will effectively mean the end of combustion engines from 2025, but will hardly have any effect on air quality.
