“Lawsuits filed for ten cities with high air pollution”
Consumer protection association Environmental Action Germany (DUH) has filed lawsuits against regulatory authorities in ten cities in order to withdraw roadworthiness of VW vehicles affected by the carmaker’s emissions fraud scandal, the association has said in a press release. Air pollution by nitrogen oxide (NO2) is constantly very high in the targeted cities, which include Berlin, Hamburg, Munich, Cologne, Frankfurt and Stuttgart, the DUH says. DUH director Jürgen Resch said the association wanted to ensure that “air quality in these cities no longer suffers from the use of fraud-diesel cars from the Volkswagen-group”.
