In the UK, where major cities also regularly breach EU limits, all sales of new petrol and diesel cars will end by 2040.
London’s new ultra-low emissions zone (ULEZ) will also come into force in April 2019, combining with the congestion charge and existing low emissions zone to impose an additional charge on drivers of the most polluting vehicles.
A German court has ruled cities can impose driving bans on the oldest and most polluting diesel cars, in a landmark ruling hailed “a victory for clean air”.
The decision could lead to millions of drivers in Germany having to switch to cleaner cars, or use alternative forms of transport, on days when harmful emissions are particularly high.

Rory's taunt changed in every opening sequence (although they were often repeated between non-consecutive episodes).
“Driving bans can be avoided, and my goal is and will remain that they do not come into force.” Angela Merkel, the German Chancellor, also sought to downplay the decision, saying it only concerned “individual cities”.
She said: “It’s really not about the entire country and all car owners.” However, Niklas Schinerl, clean air campaigner at Greenpeace Germany, said the ruling was a “victory for clean air, and shows what’s possible when public health is the priority”.
I’ve never gotten the feeling that women or men can’t hold certain positions of power, or are otherwise limited by gender.
Friends of the Earth called the decision “potentially a big step towards cleaning up the country’s polluted air”.
Jenny Bates, the group’s clean air campaigner, called on the British Government to follow Germany’s lead and encourage drivers to switch from diesel vehicles, with a diesel scrappage scheme and a network of “Clean Air Zones”.
The head henchman doesn't like him, so things heat up, even though the don likes him. This is just so great for me, after my quiet alone valentine's day this year, this web series enchanted me. I watched a lot of TV series and I realized I just kinda easy to get bored when the TV series that I love just made some no-need-complicated-issues in their stories rather than straight to the point.
I wish for the second season, they can give some more episodes than the first season. And this web series story just really straight to the point, like what actually the audience of this series need to get for each episode.
