Do I need stickers or registrations?

Since 01.July 2020, every vehicle concerned needs a valid Denmark registration to enter the low emission zone. Otherwise, a fine of up to 1,700 euros is to be expected. Before 01.07.2020 the EcoSticker was still mandatory.

 

(invalid from 01.07.2020)

The beginning and end of the environmental zones are marked with signs. This shows a red circle as a prohibition sign with the exception of "environmentally friendly vehicles". The word "environmental zone" is still written at the bottom. Who exactly is allowed to enter or not is not indicated by the entry sign.

Temporary Low Emission Zones in France explained

In France there are both permanent and temporary environmental zones. The temporary zones are only activated when pollution levels are particularly high. They are called air protection zones (Zones de Protection de L'Air = ZPA). As with permanent zones, you have to stick the appropriate sticker on your windscreen for temporary zones. When temporary zones are activated, the rules of "differentiated traffic" come into force, in French "circulation différenciée".

6 billion euros for dirty company cars

Dirty company cars are being subsidised too much, complain the Öko-Institut in Freiburg and the think tank Agora Verkehrswende. According to the institutes' calculations, the subsidies paid by German taxpayers for privately used company cars amount to up to six billion euros annually. Since it is mainly fuel-guzzlers with high engine power that are purchased by companies for their employees, this unnecessarily complicates the transport transition.

Noise cameras in Paris
