Tirol has various schemes on the A12 motorway to reduce the pollution. The night driving ban regulates driving on the A12 for HGVs. 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 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.
