Fight for Clean Polish Air

Dirty Chimneys

Dirty Chimneys

If municipal councils decide to introduce areas with limited car traffic, vehicles will be assigned different classes, depending on the amount of exhaust fumes they produce. This is the outcome of an amendment to the Environmental Protection Law. Currently there are no car traffic regulations that could protect the quality of air in Poland. According to the amendment the power to introduce such regulations will be given to municipal councils. If there are any traffic limitations for particular areas, vehicles will have to be properly marked in order to cross into them. To obtain appropriate badges car owners should give information about the type of vehicle they own, its brand, model, year of first registration and the registration number. When the application is verified, the owner of the vehicle will receive a badge of a corresponding colour: red – class 2 (e.g. for cars with spontaneous ignition engines registered 1997-2000), yellow – class 3, green – class 4 and so on. Such registration will cost PLN 10.
