The environmental zone of Stuttgart (blue)

On the occasion of the Federal Administrative Court’s decision of 27.02.2018, the city of Stuttgart plans the introduction of driving bans and diesel driving restriction zones.
It can be assumed that these traffic restrictions will be consistent with the project described in the third update of the clean air plan Stuttgart of May 2017 and that variant 9 of Annex 2 of the Clean Air Act will be applied.

By the Supreme Court's judgment, as well as the adoption of the 9th version of the clean air plan, cars and trucks not complying with the EURO 5 standard will be banned from driving on 22 streets as of 01.10.2018. EURO 0-2 petrol-powered vehicles are also affected by these restrictions.

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.
