No diesel driving bans yet for Cologne

Although the city was forced by the administrative court to introduce diesel driving bans for the Euro-4 cars, the authority strictly denies it. The new clean air plan came into force without driving bans, as the city is optimistic that it will quickly comply with the nitrogen oxide limit. Despite an improvement in air quality, the Clevischer Ring with 59µ/m³ nitrogen oxide still remains well above the mandatory EU limit.
