News on environmental zones and air pollution
The data of the Federal Environment Agency regarding air pollution was updated on 21 September and confirms that Frankfurt is still one of the "intensive cities" in terms of air pollution. The 40 µg/m³ limit is clearly exceeded. 54.7 µg/m³ has even been measured in Frankfurt, i.e. above the base that was adopted by the government on 30 May last. Therefore, driving bans are proportionate, unlike Merkel's latest statement.
