Thu Dec 8, 2016

The leaders of four major cities from Europe to Central America are planning to ban all diesel vehicles by the middle of the next decade, according to a story from Out and About Live, a United Kingdom publication.

The Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, also has proposed an expansion to the planned Ultra-Low Emission Zone in central London but is being urged to make it city-wide.

The mayors of Paris, Mexico, Madrid and Athens have said that they will stop the use of all diesel powered cars, vans and trucks, which includes motorhomes, by 2025 in order to improve air quality. They will give incentives for alternative vehicle use and promote walking and cycling.
