Hi all,

General question.
In many European cities the diesel ban will be executed starting next year as European environmental targets are not met. For instance, Berlin will have major roads/areas closed for old diesels.
Will TT Traffic info or road/map info encompass this in their updates? Or at least give warning to these limitations?

For those who can read German:


In short, the map shows the areas in Berlin that will be closed for anything less then diesel Euro 6 vehicles.

    In Germany, it iscomplicated - some cities ban Diesel euro 1-4, most time not in the whole city but only in certain main traffic connections within a city; even a highway through a city is blocked (in Essen).
    It would be easy for a Navigation system to circumnavigate such areas, in Germany as well as in other parts of the world, once the system could recognize the car we drivers are using, such as by asking the relevant questions before deciding on a route......
    We should urge the TomTom people to include such a routine. Even easier would it be, if the system could allow for including all relevant car data such as it does now for "car"-"bicyle"-"walking"....... it would help people using the system without being knowledgable on the exact conditions in a (may be foreign) country or city.....

    I quote the rules in Germany.

    "When driving in Germany, it’s a legal requirement for cars to feature emissions stickers (Umweltplakette) for entering the country’s major cities which detail their emissions standard.

    These stickers are being used to improve air quality in so-called environmental zones, which restrict access to certain areas of city centres depending on a vehicle’s emissions standard.

    If you’re planning a holiday or business trip to Germany, you need to ensure your vehicle is fitted with the sticker before setting off. Required by law, they cost 6 euros for German cars, but it can vary significantly for foreign vehicles depending on where and how you buy them."

    Each and every car and truck has to have this sticker.

    No need for TomTom, you should know this info before you drive in Germany.
