Driving bans in North Rhine-Westphalia

The Federal Environment Minister Svenja Schulze (SPD) gave a speech in the state parliament of North Rhine-Westphalia. She thinks for example that diesel driving bans in Essen, Dortmund and Düsseldorf are likely. According to her, the car industry also has to take its responsibility and retrofit the old vehicles at its own expense, which could cost an amount of 4.5 billion euros.
