News on environmental zones and air pollution

How many new driving bans in 2019?

After a successful year and many trials won, the environmental organisation "Deutsche Umwelthilfe" (DUH) has sued 4 other cities in North Rhine-Westphalia because of bad air quality: Bielefeld, Hagen, Oberhausen and Wuppertal. In order to avoid a shifting of the problem, the DUH wants all city centres to be banned for old diesel vehicles and not only a few roads. A political standoff is to be expected in 2019.
