    Do I need stickers or registrations?

    Since 01 July 2020, every vehicle concerned requires a valid Registration Denmark 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.

    Where are there environmental zones?

    There are environmental zones in many regions of Europe. The EU has issued a directive that obliges its member states to keep the air clean. The environmental zones were therefore introduced by the individual states to protect their citizens from exhaust fumes and bad air. Some countries reduce only particulate matter, others additionally nitrogen oxides, ozone and sulphur dioxides or noise.

    What is an environmental zone?

    An environmental zone is an area in which only certain vehicles are allowed. If your vehicle does not meet the conditions of the zone, you are not allowed to enter. Environmental zones are primarily designed to regulate the exhaust gases emitted by cars and thus improve air quality. Therefore, the rules of an environmental zone are often linked to vehicle emissions.
