Ban diesel engines (producing more nitrogen oxides) from 2030 and gasoline cars from 2035. It is expected to reduce the number of diseases caused by nitrogen dioxide by 25% Not only is this to prevent the premature death of 100 to 110 people annually, it is also estimated to save between 100 and 350 million euros in treatment.
What does Brussels want to prepare in return? Significant investments must be made in public transportation. In addition, city authorities want to encourage residents to walk and cycle. City cars are also becoming more and more popular by the minute. Those who still want to use their four wheels will be encouraged to buy electric cars. From 2025, local authorities will be obligated to purchase electric vehicles.
