The environmental zone of Stuttgart (blue)

In its third update of the Clean Air Plan of August 2018, the city of Stuttgart approved a traffic ban for diesel vehicles throughout the city. In this way, a blue environmental zone is added to the green environmental zone already in force. From 01.01.2019, all diesel vehicles not complying with the EURO 5 standard will be excluded. In addition, further restrictions will be imposed from 2020 onwards. Initially, delivery vans, craftman vans and construction vehicles registered before 01.01.2019 are exempt from the traffic ban. Residents are allowed to drive in until 31.03.2019.

Following the Federal Administrative Court’s decision on 27.02.2018, diesel driving restrictions can be legally imposed by German cities and municipalities.
Individual streets or whole areas can become diesel restriction zones. These diesel restriction zones (blue zones) can affect different EURO standards and vehicle types and can even be time-limited.
