  • President rejects LEZ law

    The Czech president Vaclav Klaus has intervened to stop the Czech Republic introducing low-emissions zones.

    [mailchimp_signup][/mailchimp_signup]The law had been agreed at all levels of the Czech legislature, but was vetoed by the president because, a spokesperson said, it would have a negative impact on business and – due to a number of loopholes – would not be effective in reducing emission levels. The aim of the law is to reduce air pollution from transport, especially in the industrial area of Moravia. The president’s veto could yet be overturned in the Czech parliament.
