News on environmental zones and air pollution
Winfried Kretschmann (Greens) has again spoken out against a EURO 5 driving ban. The sinking nitrogen oxide values in the greater Stuttgart area would prove him right, according to the Minister President of Baden Württemberg. "The numerous measures that we have taken are having an effect. The air in Stuttgart is getting better. The figures show this impressively", the "Stuttgarter Nachrichten" quote the 71-year-old Green politician. Since the beginning of 2019, a driving ban has been in force in Stuttgart for diesel cars up to and including the Euro 4 standard. "We are on the right track, but have not yet reached our goal," Kretschmann continued.
