News on environmental zones and air pollution

"zone awareness"

For years, environmental zones have shaped the picture in European countries. Those who fail to obtain comprehensive information before setting off on their journey run the acute risk of collecting a hefty fine. Ignorance does not protect from punishment, as a recent court ruling in Magdeburg shows. There a passenger car user had sued against a penalty notice of 80 euro. The injured party stated that he had entered an environmental zone via a car park exit - there was no sign showing the corresponding zone at that point.
The court did not grant the appeal of the previously convicted person. Justification: A motor vehicle driver must have "a zone consciousness" and independently check whether he is in a zone at all times during the journey.

This would not have happened with the Green Zones App.
