Tirol has various schemes on the A12 motorway to reduce the pollution. The permanent ‘motorway LEZ' has been in place since 1 January 2007 and affects pre-Euro 3 lorries over 7.5 tonnes. It is detailed below.
From 1 November 2016 the sectoral driving ban has been tightened to Euro VI.
There is also a night-driving ban on pre-Euro 6 lorries over 7.5T, a sectoral driving ban (lorries over 7.5 tonnes), an air quality-based speed limit (100km/h for passenger cars), 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.
