Keeping up to date with LEZs across Europe

Jul 02, 2013
Because removal and storage companies continually work in and out of cities it is important to keep abreast of low emission zone rules, which apply in different European cities. www.lowemissionzones.eu is a multilingual one-stop-source of information and a useful resource for all vehicle operators.

The website went online in January 2008 at a time, when over 70 cities and towns in eight countries around Europe had or were in the process of preparing Low Emission Zones. Today there are around 200 Low Emission Zones in nearly 1,800 local authorities in nine European countries with more LEZs being planned for the future.

The development of the webpage was granted EU funding for 3 years beginning in December 2009 and came to an end in December 2012. For a short time it was not clear whether the information would still be updated in the future. However, www.lowemissionzones.eu is still online and it is still being continuously updated. All information available about existing and planned Low Emission Zones is easily accessible and subscriptions for periodical alerts are free.

Without this one-stop-source of information operators would be left trying to fathom out the contact details, rules, interpretations, updates and changes in hundreds of towns and cities throughout Europe as well as trying to find out about any new cities implementing such schemes - a very daunting prospect indeed! 

The development of Low Emission Zones has been one of the important measures introduced to help improve air quality to improve the health of everyone living and driving in Europe. Air pollution is responsible for 310,000 premature deaths in Europe each year, with professional drivers in cities breathing some of the most polluted air.
