News on environmental zones and air pollution
After some German lung doctors had claimed at the beginning of 2019 that air pollution was not so bad, Federal Transport Minister Scheuer immediately jumped on the bandwagon. He took the statements as an opportunity to apply to the EU Commission for a review of the limit values. This request was now officially rejected. On the contrary, the EU wanted to check whether the limit values had not yet to be tightened. Most German politicians react with mockery to the minister.
