How do I recognize the low emission zone?
Good to know...
All current driving bans and further information are available in our Green-Zones App.
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.
In order to achieve the EU's climate goals, the EU is promoting the sale of e-cars enormously. And they also want to enforce their goal with stricter regulations for combustion cars.
The EU's new proposals are so strict that they will not promote climate-friendly bus transport, but will effectively ban it. If more cars are used for long-distance travel again, even low emission zones on motorways are conceivable.
Electric cars produce almost as much particulate matter as combustion engines, yet they are not regulated. The increase in the number of electric cars could therefore soon lead to a deterioration in air quality and new driving bans for combustion engines.
In the fight against air pollution and congestion, many low emission zones are being extended and more and more cars are now prohibited from entering them.
Paris 83 instead of 10, Marseille 89 instead of 5, Lyon 108 instead of 14. This is how many days with temporary driving bans will be in France from 2021.
