Evaluation after 100 days of driving bans in Hamburg

Cars and trucks that do not comply with Euro 6 are no longer allowed to drive on sections of the Max-Brauer-Allee and the Stresemannstraße. Even if nitrogen oxide levels have fallen, traffic has been diverted to alternative routes, according to the environmental organisation BUND, that prescribe a driving ban throughout the city within the “Ring 2”. For the authorities, however, it is still too early to draw a representative evaluation.
