The coalition committee of the state government is thus opposing a zonal traffic ban on diesel (including pollutant class Euro 5) planned for the beginning of July, which is currently being prepared by the Stuttgart Regional Council in the course of the 5th update of the air pollution control plan.
"The air is getting cleaner and cleaner, there should be no expansion of the low emission zone", said Andreas Schwarz, leader of the Green Party parliamentary group.
