Court orders diesel bans in Cologne and Bonn

Administrative Court of Cologne

In a further setback for government efforts to get the diesel crisis under control, the regional administrative court in Western German city Cologne has ordered city authorities in Cologne and in neighbouring Bonn to introduce driving bans for older diesel cars. The two cities in the federal state North Rhine-Westphalia (NRW) join a list of other cities forced to ban diesels in polluted areas, such as Berlin, Stuttgart, and Munich.
