Traffic and air

| Articles and press releases | Publications | Employees |
We have through many years presented proposal for reduction ofCO2 from traffic and the emissions in cities – including small particles -  by traffic reduction and use of particle filters, or through a shift to electric vehicles or gas,

This could be financed by increased taxes on diesel and diesel vehicles without filters.

We have

  • Discussed the relationships between traffic and life style, urban planning and other aspects of modern life.
  • Proposed a change in the car-related taxes, in order to reduce emissions – including a phase-out of the Danish tax reductions concerning the daily transport between home and place of work.
  • Proposed higher taxes on fuel and restrictions on car traffic in cities, e.g. by the use of congestion charging – and later road pricing.
