One of the very first things Madrid's new rightwing government has done was to impose a moratorium on the fines on unauthorized vehicles that enter Madrid Central, thereby allowing that low-emissions area to revert to the free-for-all area it used to be. Fortunately, last week the court stepped in and suspended the moratorium as a precautionary measure. The court ruling will remain in force until a new decision is made. What will the fate of Madrid Central be?
The Madrid Central, the Central Area of Low Emissions will ultimately phase out pollutant traffic from the central district of the city where 72% of movements are owing to internal combustion cars. Imagine a place without them. Paradise recouped!
