Fine dust sticker / environmental badge issue

For areas with poor air quality, there are air pollution control plans. Air pollution control plans contain measures to improve air quality. Environmental zones are a possible measure of such air pollution control plans. Environmental zones reduce particulate matter and nitrogen dioxide pollution. Vehicles with high pollutant emissions are not allowed to drive in environmental zones.

If you want to drive your vehicle in such an environmental zone, you must purchase a fine dust sticker/ environmental badge. The badge is available in three different colours, each of which is assigned to a pollutant group. The classification of your vehicle in one of the pollutant groups depends on the emission key numbers. These can be found in the vehicle documents.

Note: A separate traffic sign indicates the environmental zones. The additional sign indicates the colours of the badges with which vehicles can travel freely in the specific environmental zone.
