What have the federal, state and local governments agreed on?
The federal government is providing a further 932 million euros in the fight against air pollution in cities. It is increasing the “Immediate Clean Air Program” from 1.0 to 1.5 million. With the money from this pot, municipalities can pay for projects with which they fight against inner-city air pollution on site - for example by purchasing electric buses, expanding rental bike systems and the like. The federal government is providing 432 euros so that in the 65 German cities with the highest nitrogen oxide pollution ( h listed here ) municipal diesel vehicles and Delivery vans can be retrofitted with SCR catalytic converters.
The measures should help to avert diesel driving bans in city centers. They are for nine cities already decided . Now it is becoming increasingly clear that these should actually be monitored by automatic license plate scan ( more information can be found here ). According to Süddeutscher Zeitung, the federal government has already decided on legal changes. The federal government will support the municipalities in purchasing the necessary equipment.
