  • Urban mobility challenges
  • A lot of and increasing demands on the urban transport system
  • However, the situation with regards to some societal costs is so problematic (e.g. Air Quality) that there is simply no margin to allow polluters to pay. The pollution should be prevented, and this happens by regulating access to urban areas for specific vehicle categories.
  • .... And that sometimes implies taking unpopular measures such as access restrictions, not a popular and a politically sensitive measure
    LEZ, ULEZ, congestion charge, diesel bans...

    Different reasons for local authorities to implement UVARs
    air quality, safety, congestion, liveability
    Variety of UVARs appearing in the EU
    Ongoing multi-stakeholder process to define non- binding guidance at EU level
    Fee-based or fine-based
    The instrument is effective, and enables change/transition
