News on environmental zones and air pollution

Urban toll against air pollution?

In Berlin, limit values for nitrogen oxide are still exceeded on certain streets. The risk with driving bans on some streets is to move the problem to adjacent streets. According to researcher Gernot Liedtke, an urban toll around the city would therefore be a better solution and could be fairer than massive traffic restrictions for those with few money to buy a cleaner car. The system exists for instance already in London or Stockholm.
