More Recap on Diesel Ban

Oslo mulls winter ban on diesel cars

“(Diesel engines) are the big bad wolf when it comes to air quality,” he said.

The city experimented with closing its streets to diesel emissions in February 2011, when the last digits on licence plates determined whether a vehicle could enter the city on days when the air was “acutely bad”.

This year, a number of actions are being considered: making all diesel-driven cars stay away; a ban on all personal cars burning diesel; no driving alone in a diesel-powered car and no heavy transport through the city.
