Do low emission zones work? TomTom Traffic Index has the answer
Low emission zones (LEZ) have become a key feature in modern cities.

Newer, cleaner forms of transport like electric vehicles are allowed freely in and out of low emission zones.

The coronavirus pandemic has changed a lot. We’ve been forced to alter and adapt the ways we approach work, socializing, shopping and transport. This is reflected in TomTom’s Traffic Index, which, for 11 years, has tracked congestion in our cities. With the pandemic throwing most things into disarray, the company’s Traffic Index goes beyond just monitoring congestion. It is now serving as a barometer for economic recovery and social change in our cities.
