Low emission zone and emissions-control windscreen sticker

Low emission zones were introduced in many German cities to mitigate air pollution caused by fine particles and nitrogen oxide. Low emission zones are identified by traffic signs and additional signs. The Thirty-fifth Ordinance on the Implementation of the Federal Immission Control Act (Ordinance on the marking of vehicles) stipulates that vehicles have to be marked with stickers (on the windscreen inside the vehicle) and lays down the criteria vehicles have to meet for the different kinds of stickers. Stickers are valid for all low emission zones in Germany.

In Ludwigsburg vehicles of the pollutant group 4 (green fine particle sticker) may be used in all environmental zones. Foreign vehicles are also enforced and are required to buy a sticker. Please note that this is also relevant for visitors.
