There are several cities in our country that have opted for the implementation of a Low Emission Zone (ZBE), normally located in the center of the same or in their historic centers. These areas are intended reduce road traffic of the most polluting vehicles demanding to enter a specific environmental label on vehicles.
Entering these ZBEs without the corresponding label or without the necessary permissions will result in cause a fine to be issued to the owner of the vehicle. The problem comes when you are going to travel to other cities and you don’t know if they have a ZBE and the limitations that apply. This is where an interesting interactive map that has been presented by the Ministry of Ecological Transition where you can see all these areas comes into play.
