Environment Ministry calls on Israel cities to ban polluting vehicles

After the Haifa City Council made an unprecedented decision last week to ban the entry of polluting diesel vehicles from its center, the Environmental Protection Ministry called upon other cities to follow suit on Sunday.

Joining 200 European cities that have already done the same, Haifa City Council members voted last Tuesday night to approve a bylaw to delineate "an area of reduced polluting emissions from transportation" – also known as a Clean Air Zone. Assuming the bylaw receives the authorization of the interior and transportation ministries, the legislation will empower Haifa officials to take action against polluting vehicles that venture into the city’s urban center.
