The new Norwegian legislation allows all kinds of measures to reduce PM and NO2. Norway has a congestion charging scheme for studded tyre use in cities. Bergen and Oslo have already established the scheme, Trondheim and Stavenger will follow. Studded tyres are often used in Norway in winter. However, in urban areas, the studded tyres damage the street surface and also raise the PM levels.
Studded tyres season in Oslo is from 1st November to end of March.
