    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.

    Fines in Germany too low

    When comparing the fines for traffic offenders in Europe, it is striking how little one actually has to pay in Germany. This also applies to unauthorised entry into environmental zones or other closed roads. In the past, there was even a point in Flensburg for this, but this has been abolished in the meantime, as the road safety of road users is not considered to be at risk. Nevertheless, the question arises as to the efficiency of environmental zones when, firstly, there are hardly any checks and, secondly, fines are rarely collected.

    Austria: Stricter environmental zones for all trucks and cars

    Austria's current climate plan will not be enough to meet the EU targets by 2030 and thus reduce CO2 emissions by 7 percent. Now it is being discussed whether the rules of the environmental zones should be tightened. Then, for example, only trucks with a registration from 2020 would be allowed in Tyrol. But that will not be enough to combat air pollution. One solution would be to extend the rules to other vehicle classes such as passenger cars.
