News on environmental zones and air pollution
The Neckartor is known nationwide as the highest polluted place in Germany. The nitrogen oxide values sank recently from 71 to first 62µg/m³, which lies clearly over the limit allowed values. In order to avoid a tightening of the current driving bans up to 01.01.2020, the city wants to install passive collectors not only at the Neckartor but at two other locations. Then the measurement at the Neckartor would no longer be representative of the real situation.
