News on environmental zones and air pollution
In Düsseldorf, it has been stirring the spirits of residents and commuters for months: the eco lane. Now Dortmund is following suit, and since yesterday's Sunday it has been activated here too. In addition, there are several measures already implemented, such as 30 km/h speed limit zones and a new cycle for some traffic lights in the city.
An alternative to this package of measures would have been a ban on diesel driving. However, whether the Ruhr metropolis has done itself a favour with the eco lane remains controversial and remains to be seen.
