Diesel traffic bans: a campaign issue?

Elections will be held next Sunday in the State of Hesse in Germany. Since Frankfurt was forced by the Administrative Court to introduce diesel driving bans, this subject has become a hot election campaign topic.

The CDU Minister-President is now advocating a change in legislation, so that a "slight" exceeding of the authorised limits does not imply driving bans.
