Club news: ADAC urges policymakers to consider real-world driving emissions to effectively lower pollution


Publication date: 19 May 2015


In real-life driving conditions vehicle emissions often exceed the limits, even when these vehicles comply with strict emission standards. As a result, ADAC plans to introduce the means to determine real driving emissions in real-life driving situations and urge policymakers to use this for effective legislation to lower vehicle emissions. ADAC urges EU policymakers to include direct emissions metrics from a road test in upcoming Euro emission limits legislation. This is one method that could ensure that carmakers will equip their vehicles with emissions control technologies and lower pollutant emissions.

 

The Club intends to acquire an RDE measuring device with the objective to ensure that the cars consumers buy in the future will meet the emission requirements and will not be affected by inner city driving bans. The Club calls for technical solutions from manufacturers that prevent local policymakers from introducing inner city driving bans due to high emission levels.
