Question for written answer E-001693-17
to the Commission
Rule 130
Ivo Belet (PPE) , Wim van de Camp (PPE)

 Subject:  European data exchange in the context of low-emission zones
 Answer in writing 

To improve the air quality in urban environments, more than 225 low-emission zones have already been implemented in 14 European Member States(1) to regulate access by the most-polluting vehicles.

Control takes place through direct police checks on the street or, in many cases, by means of automatic number-plate control.

To create a level playing field, automatic number-plate control also registers foreign number plates. In the case of infringements, information must however be exchanged with the country in question.

Directive 2011/82/EU organises cross-border data exchange in the case of traffic offences, but does not provide a European framework for data exchange with regard to infringements in the scope of low-emission zones. What initiatives can the Commission and Member States take in the short term to facilitate the exchange of data pertaining to infringements in the context of low-emission zones? Within what time frame does the Commission envisage doing so?
