There is a moment for everything in life. As a campaigning organisation, we often have to work very hard to create the moment for the things we believe in. The right moment came two years ago for mandatory carbon dioxide emissions standards for cars, and for taking the first tentative steps towards making aviation address its environmental costs. The moment has now arrived for another decisive step towards sustainable transport – the Eurovignette.
Efforts to reduce climate emissions from road freight transport were given a boost last month when the Commission suggested the introduction of carbon dioxide emissions standards for the first time. The idea has been floated in a communication on clean and energy-efficient vehicles, which concentrates mainly on setting a framework for the development of electric cars.
An interesting legal judgement has been made in Switzerland over covering the costs of road transport.
A change may be in the air in Spain, following a call by the president of the National Confederation of Construction Works for the country to introduce more road tolls.
Research by the respected Dutch consultancy CE Delft has shown that carbon dioxide emissions from road transport could be reduced by 30% if motorway speed limits in the Netherlands were set at 80 km/h.
Allegations by a Green MEP have led the Commission to investigate possible illegal activity in which oversized lorries are operating between Germany and Denmark.
