The EcoSticker is mandatory in Denmark for Lorries and Busses
The EcoSticker had been already introduced in Denmark in 2009 and is also mandatory for foreign diesel Lorries and busses since the 1st of November 2011.
Lorries and busses with a total weight of 3, 5 tons need a green environmental EcoSticker in order to drive through the four environmental zones in Denmark.
The EcoSticker is only delivered to the vehicles that correspond to the norm EURO 4, in order to reduce the environmental impact of the vehicles of the norm EURO 1 to 3 and to distinguish them from the more recent and environment-friendly vehicles. The main goal of the measure is to achieve a progressive amelioration of the air quality which could have immediate repercussions, especially through the reduction of fine particles emissions.
The four environmental zones are located in the larger cities of Denmark. Those are Copenhagen, Aalborg, Aarhus and Odense. Those four cities have introduced a “Miljozone” (environmental zone) in their city centre, which is delimited with special traffic signs.
Injuries against the EcoSticker rule can be punished with a fine up to 2,700 Euro and even lead to a penalty of imprisonment.
