Position Paper: Urban Access Restrictions

The Action Plan on Urban Mobility released in September 2009 by the European Commission refers to the Commission’s intention to support improved information and, more precisely, to study the different urban access restrictions that have been introduced across the EU and “facilitate the exchange of good practices”.

In this context, ACEA wants to submit to the Commission and to other transport stakeholders its contribution to the debate and underline that the trend towards an ever increasing European patchwork of traffic restrictions governed by differing regulations with transport becoming increasingly expensive, is not acceptable.
