Diesel driving bans in Hamburg

Since the end of May, the city has voluntarily introduced diesel driving bans in order to bring the nitrogen oxide values below the permitted limit values. How effective was it? The opposition considers it pointless: the measured values were 48µg/m³ in October 2018 compared to 39µg/m³ one year earlier in October 2017. However, the environmental authority considers it too early to take stock. They recommend to wait another half year before judging the situation.
