Company cars in Germany still run on diesel and petrol far too often, putting the brakes on climate policy. A full 87% of new company cars have a combustion engine. The fleet urgently needs to be redesigned to save CO2.
Cheap, fast and easy. That's how Germans like their mobility. Many don't care whether it is also good for the climate. So although many citizens are calling for more climate protection, they don't want to start with their own cars.
Eco-lanes and free parking in city centres: Bavaria's cities are to become more attractive for e-cars. There are to be no car-free zones, strict environmental zones or a speed limit on Bavaria's motorways, although this could have a lot of effect.
Even the newest vehicles and those with electric drives need a green environmental sticker in Germany. We are often asked why this is the case. E-cars registered in Germany have the letter "E" at the end of the number plate and are thus directly recognisable as electric vehicles. Isn't that enough? The answer: unfortunately, no!
Spain is getting serious in the fight against combustion cars. A new law requires cities with over 50,000 inhabitants to introduce environmental zones. About 150 cities are affected. In addition, taxes on diesel and petrol vehicles and tolls on motorways are to make driving more difficult for Spaniards.
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.
Germany is the first country in the world to pass a law for autonomous driving. It is intended to make the roads safer and also more climate-friendly. To implement it, special lanes or entire zones would have to be set up in which the vehicles can travel.
A general definition is quickly found. A sticker is a small haptic plate of any shape and colour and a registration, in contrast, is a process of entering information into a directory or database. But what about environmental stickers and registrations for environmental zones?
In Spain it has just been passed, in France the measure has existed for a long time: 30 km/h speed limit in cities and villages. Speed limits can significantly reduce the number of traffic fatalities and air pollution. The WHO is also in favour of it. In Germany, the idea falls on deaf ears.
In many big cities in Asia, air pollution is dramatic. High population density and many old vehicles contribute to this. Some existing driving bans and the new environmental zone in Singapore could spur a rethink.
