New regulation will allow communities to ban high-emission vehicles

A new governmental regulation from the Environment Ministry will allow communities introducing low-emission zones to ban high-emission vehicles. Such bans would require vehicles to have special certification, which would rule out most cars registered before 1997. According to the daily Mladá fronta Dnes, the spa town of Klimkovice has shown interest in enforcing a low-emission zone, while Prague has made a special workgroup to consider the idea.
