Green Light to Diesel Ban in Germany

German cities have been given the go-ahead to ban older diesel cars from their roads with immediate effect. Vehicles up to and including Euro 5 can be restricted, with no grace period required, Fleet News reported. German federal authorities issued its ruling on Friday, confirming diesel bans are legally possible and in areas, where it is the fastest route to reducing pollution, legally required. It comes as Germany has been referred to the EU’s highest court over its failure to tackle illegal pollution, according to limits that came into force in 2010. ClientEarth clean air lawyer Ugo Taddei said, “This judgment makes it unavoidably clear—regional governments can and should put diesel restrictions in place where pollution is dangerously high.”
