News on environmental zones and air pollution

Driving bans on part of the Berlin ring road?

Last week, for the first time in Germany, it was decided to call for diesel driving bans on a motorway (the A40 in Essen, Ruhrgebiet). For this reason, the environmental organisation Deutsche Umwelthilfe considers driving bans on the Berlin A100 ring road between Kaiserdamm and ICC to be possible. However, the Berlin Senate administration remains very doubtful as to whether such a ban is pertinent, mainly because of the modal shift effects that would simply shift the air pollution.
