Het Europees Parlement heeft op het nippertje ingestemd met de Commissiebesluiten voor een tijdelijke versoepeling van de uitstootlimieten voor stikstof uit dieselauto's. Het dreigende veto bleef uit nadat de Commissie instemde met een herzieningsclausule en een wetgevingsvoorstel presenteerde waarin de regels voor de toelating van auto's drastisch zijn herzien. Dit voorstel kwam tot stand onder druk van het EP naar aanleiding van het schandaal met sjoemelsoftware bij Volkswagen.
