Low Emission Zones for Germany 32 cities!!! Reviews
32 cities in Germany have or are about to implement new Low Emission Zones. Jan 03, 2009
this only refers to driving in a few select cities. its just good information i thought to pass along since its a pretty new shceme. To improve the quality of life and most importantly the environment, 32 cities throughout Germany soon are about to implement new Low Emission Zones into which only vehicles displaying an “Emission Badge” (Umwelt Plakette) are allowed to enter. Vehicles entering a Green Zone and not displaying a badge are likely to be fined €40. To get an “Emission Badge” the only item required is a vehicle registration document (V5) and the vehicle itself. Emission Badges are available from a wide range of outlets including repair centres, car dealers, MOT (Tüv) stations and vehicle licensing offices. On the internet Emission Badges can be purchased before travelling to Germany from Tüv Nord or Tüv Süd. “Emission Badge” cost around €5-€10. Any “Emission Badge” issued is valid for the entire life of the vehicle and throughout Germany. From 2010 it is likely that only vehicles with a green or yellow “Emission Badge” will be allowed to enter a city centre, check on city laws.
