News on environmental zones and air pollution

Restricted traffic rather than driving bans

The city of Düsseldorf, in North Rhine-Westphalia, is waiting for the decision of the Münster Administrative Court of Appeal, which may again impose driving bans on diesel vehicles. To avoid this, two "environmental paths" will be introduced. Specifically, on two heavily trafficked roads, one lane will only be accessible to certain vehicles: buses, electric vehicles, taxis and bicycles. If the air quality improves, diesel driving bans will no longer be necessary.
