Penalties for Diesel drivers: A sign for the climate

Diesel driving bans will not be criticised as unenforceable, because they are controllable. The practice refutes this Argument.

Well, there you go: the Diesel-to control driving bans, is by no means the total surveillance of road traffic is needed. The first to Pay fines for ignorant Diesel-riders show. In four German cities, the old Diesel are not or partially not allowed to drive. This has led in a short period of time, more than 15,000 administrative fine proceedings, and by the way. Because most of the violations were because drivers were too fast or through a red light and drove. Controls specifically for the enforcement of the bans, it was only in the Form of samples.

The authorities are quite like those of the means available to them in the characters. The Argument made by many local authorities against the Diesel-driving bans, they are not enforceable, because it is not controllable, was already very weak. Now it is refuted. However, more than 15,000 administrative fine not to show notices that many of the drivers have the right to take the bans seriously. This may be a consequence of the message sent to the cities in the past, as you said controls are not feasible.

How can local authorities engage, shows the example of Darmstadt. No other city has so many violations. Here, the driving ban was placed on two roads where the speed limit is 30. Exemplary: Darmstadt monitors compliance with the speed with radar devices strictly. Thousands went in the past few months and into the net, which had ignored the driving ban. The combination of Diesel-driving ban and speed limit is obviously promising.

In a number of cities, it is still unclear whether and how Diesel-driving bans to be implemented. You should take the example of Darmstadt. The reduction in the permissible speed is also a contribution to the environment – not only air quality, but also for the climate. Cities should take advantage of every opportunity to do something for it.
