Maastricht to follow German example introducing its Low Emission Zone

The city of Maastricht has announced its plans to introduce a Low Emission Zone (LEZ) next year. The measure is part of the city’s efforts to improve air quality.

Unlike other Dutch cities that have introduced an LEZ, or have announced plans to do so, Maastricht is the first Dutch city planning to use a vignette system, following the example of the green environmental badge (Umweltplakette) used in Germany. Critics fear a patchwork of rules and enforcement systems for LEZ will emerge.
