Diesel traffic restrictions are coming in Frankfurt!

Following the complaint of the environmental organisation “Deutsche Umwelthilfe”, the Wiesbaden Court of Justice ruled that diesel driving bans are the only way for Frankfurt to rapidly reduce nitrogen oxide levels. From February 2019, diesel vehicles with Euro 4 or lower standards as well as gasoline vehicles with Euro 1 and 2 standards will be banned from driving. The next step will affect the Euro 5 diesel vehicles from September 2019.
