I think Frankfurt is now moving towards diesel ban only in selected streets, just like the Berlin diesel ban that will start next week.

 

I wonder if they will take the same approach as in nearby Darmstadt.

 

Basically, nothing stops you driving on those roads.  There are no controls, and nobody checks.  Only if you get stopped for another offence will they also check if you are allowed to drive there or not.

 

So as long as you behave, don't crash, you are OK!!

In Berlin I think you are totally right, there are plenty of exceptions, like if you live or work on those streets, people who are going to repair something there, customer of businesses in those streets, even just simply going to visit someone who lives in the street.

So, Berlin Police already said they do not have the manpower to fully implement this, it is too difficult to manually check all cars in those streets.   So now the discussion moved to implementing automatic checks, i.e. cameras with license plate recognition.   But even then, with so many exceptions, how can you automatize the checks?

To be fair, its much the same for almost everything.  you could walk down the road with a bag of stuff burgled from your neighbor or drive around with a dead body in the trunk and unless the police see you doing something suspect they will just let you on your merry way.

 

Why should this particular rule need a complex and expensive automated checking system?

Because like a lot of these automated checking systems (such as hidden blitzers)they do next to nothing to stop the problem but bring in a shedload of cash for the stadt.

I would imagine Germain data privacy laws would prevent the automatic data collection of millions of cars.

 

It's only possible in more delectronically developed counties like the UK

Legal cases now be made.

 

 

 

 

Not sure anyone should be held responsible for what goes on in the DRC and many other African countries outside of their own governments! Sounds to me like money making for lawyers.
