State Capital Stuttgart


Low-emission zone

Since 1st March 2008, Stuttgart has been a Low Emission Zone. This means that only vehicles in certain emission categories may drive in the urban area of Stuttgart.

These regulations are designed to lower the high levels of particulate emission and nitrogen dioxide pollution in the air, and they have been implemented throughout Germany in so-called Low Emission Zones. The traffic restrictions in these Low Emission Zones apply all the time, i.e. irrespective of whether the levels of air pollution are higher or lower at any one time.
