News on environmental zones and air pollution
Darmstadt was the only city in Hesse to close two road sections for diesel vehicles up to Euronorm 5 and for petrol vehicles with Euronorm 1 and 2. By the additional installation of a 30er zone and firm measuring plants, it was possible for the city to subject the road traffic to intensive controls. The balance makes you sit up and take notice: By the end of November, the Public Order Office and a total of 11,000 violations had been recorded. The city is also able to check the speeding licence plates of drivers who violate the driving ban.
