    Fireplaces and BBQs more polluting than cars auto

    What is the influence of passenger car traffic on air quality in the Netherlands? The KNAC has been asking this question since the introduction of the first environmental zones in 2007 and the reduction of the maximum speed to 100 km/h in 2020. KNAC director Peter Staal lacks a good numerical substantiation that justifies all anti-car measures. Sea

    Verona. An example alternative for the environmental zones

    For some time now it has been relatively quiet around the environmental zone issue. The heat is out of the discussion. In the Netherlands it has become clear that every municipality will soon have a choice, which is limited to setting up a zone where Euro 3 or Euro 4 is the starting point. It will be an improvement on the knitting […] Sea

    Amsterdam: high price for diesel and gasoline ban in 2030

    From 2030, no petrol or diesel car will be allowed to drive in the whole of Amsterdam. Amsterdam must be released in phases for traffic-related emissions. In several respects it leads to a bill that is paid dearly. A start will be made on the implementation of the plans next year. Now only older mopeds, vans, trucks and taxis are allowed to use the […] Sea

    Background: Coalition agreement Rotterdam provides for simplified national environmental zone policy

    The Rotterdam environmental zone for passenger cars will be phased out in the coming years. A fresh coalition agreement puts an end to the controversial zone, where older petrol and diesel vehicles were not allowed to be driven. He will be drastically overhauled.

    The environmental zone. Transferred files instead of advancing insight.

    The environmental zone perils has been quite busy again in recent days. The large cities in North Brabant are leaving the environmental zone for what it is. “No use”, they say in the south of the country.

    Arnhem is also tackling green surrealism: the environmental zone is coming

    From next year, Arnhem will be the city with the strictest environmental zone for passenger cars in the Netherlands. Diesel cars from before 2004 are no longer allowed to enter the center of the Gelderland capital, and diesel cars from before 2006 only if they meet certain European requirements. The Green Left cheers, but a good foundation for this decision should be at least […] Sea

    Alderman Langenberg's departure is Green Left's Rotterdam party: Environment Zone

    Commotion everywhere. The Rotterdam D'66 alderman - partly responsible for the implementation of the current environmental zone in the port city - has left local politics. Pex Langenberg survived several storms of criticism. The conversion of the Hoekse Lijn - the railway to Hoek van Holland - into a metro connection led to delays. The additional costs of the postponement amounting to […] Sea

    Reflections on environmental zones are becoming ever greater

    The Nose of the Pike: Citroën DS

    When our salesman Marc happily informs me that we can auction a great, 45-year-old 7-seater station wagon, it could be German, French, Swedish or American, but at least something beautiful. A few days later when I find myself in a neighborhood in Amstelveen where a garage door slowly becomes a pointed nose with a split […] Sea
