Anti-smog traffic measures in Rome

Rome bans most polluting vehicles from driving on Monday 3 February as the city's public transport strike is postponed.

Rome has banned the most polluting vehicles from circulating within the city’s fascia verde or green belt (the area inside the GRA ring road) on Monday 3 February, from 07.30 to 20.30, as part of anti-smog measures.

The restrictions affect two-, three- and four-wheel 2 and 4-stroke PRE-EURO 1 and EURO 1 vehicles, as well as EURO 2 petrol-driven vehicles.

The city says the measures are necessary to reduce high pollution levels which currently exceed the smog limit. For full details see city website.

Meanwhile the 24-hour public transport strike scheduled in Rome on Monday 3 February has been called off.
