News on environmental zones and air pollution
Stuttgart's Mayor Fritz Kuhn (Green Party) considers as completely open about whether and to what extent his city will implement driving bans for vehicles with diesel engines in the coming year. Kuhn told the German Press Agency (DPA): "In the end, the state government will decide. When the summers are very hot, nitrogen oxide formation is greater. A lot of wind and rain, on the other hand, are good against nitrogen oxides in the air. And it is the question of how quickly people replace their Euro 5 diesel, how quickly electric mobility develops in the city and how many people switch to public transports."
