Green Zone in Leipzig, Germany
Leipzig, in a similar way to the German city of Erfurt, which introduced the environmental zones in 2012, passed straight to a green badge. Immediately after the introduction of the zones, cars with a red or yellow sticker were not allowed into the city. Only cars with a green badge are allowed entry.
Yet most German cities (Berlin and Munich, for example) initially permitted entrance to less environmentally friendly vehicles.
