Millions of vehicles affected by driving bans

According to the Ministry of Transport of the State of North Rhine-Westphalia, the state is counting 3 million diesel vehicles, which are only 900,000 registered with the Euro 6 standard. This means that 70% of the diesel vehicles in North Rhine-Westphalia could be affected by traffic bans. For example, traffic bans could be introduced in Bonn, Essen, Gelsenkirchen and Cologne by 2019.
