KNAC goes to Council of State in connection with environmental zone

ER Classics Desktop 2022

The Royal Dutch Automobile Club (KNAC) appeals against the decision of the Utrecht Court of Appeal (dated 10-1-2016) concerning the Utrecht environmental zone. In that judgment, the KNAC finds various starting points for continuing the legal activities.

In an earlier instance, the court set aside, among other things, the traffic decree of the municipality of Utrecht and the objection of the KNAC was deemed well-founded. The court also described the effect of the environmental zone as being 'marginal' and considerably smaller than was suggested by the municipality of Utrecht. However, the KNAC does not agree with the court's decision to maintain the environmental zone despite all this. Reason why the KNAC and the affiliated KNAC Vriendenclubs are now appealing.

Uniform policy
Apart from the fact that the introduction of the Utrecht environmental zone per 1 January 2015 has had no demonstrably large effect, the KNAC has difficulty with the considerable costs associated with the introduction of the environmental zone. The KNAC advocates - if there should already be an environmental zone - a uniform, national policy. The KNAC also points out that the motion of the House of Representatives not to make the board used to date for environmental zones apply to passenger cars was not taken into account in the earlier court ruling. Finally, according to the KNAC, the share of the pollution of the vehicles that have been rejected in relation to other road users has not been taken into consideration.
