Tirol has various schemes on the A12 motorway to reduce the pollution. The air quality-based speed limit (from 17. November 2014) is one of the schemes. It is detailed below.
From 1 November 2016 the sectoral driving ban has been tightened to Euro VI.
There is also a motorway LEZ (pre-Euro 2 lorries over 7.5 T), a night-driving ban on pre-Euro 6 lorries over 7.5T, a sectoral driving ban (lorries over 7.5 tonnes), a night time speed limit (all vehicles) and a ban on overtaking (lorries over 3.5 tonnes). These other schemes are detailed on the pages linked from the menu on the right.
Air quality-based speed limit
When air pollution is high the speed limit for passenger cars is reduced from 130km/h to 100km/h. This has been in operation since the 1st November 2007.
When certain threshold values for air pollution and traffic volume are exceeded the speed limit for passenger cars is reduced from 130km/h to 100km/h.
