Judge bans diesel vehicle from Stuttgart starting on 01.01.2018

The process leaded by the German Environmental Help Association DUH against the city of Stuttgart demanding the interdiction of diesel vehicles inside the capital of Baden-Wurttemberg has been decided on 28.07.2017. Thus, restrictions of circulation for vehicles with diesel engines will be introduced to certain streets and zones of Stuttgart. The long-awaited judgement could surprise the industry in this region with a long tradition of car construction and force politicians to take air improving measures. With his decision, the judge answered to the population’s desire as 64% of them would have voted for the diesel interdiction (Forsa Institute).
