    We are planning our first 2012 trip :thumb:, but our camper is 1991 built. So we have to be very careful not to enter any LEZ zone by mistake. :Doh:

    We have been warned that especially in Italy those LEZ zones are not clearly and recognizably marked by the roadsigns :Eeek:

    In my search for a clear overview of LEZ zones in Europe i found this website

    This helped me a lot so therefore i share this one with all of you

    We were thinking we might honour Tuscany with our presence in the summer. It looks from this site as if you need a separate sticker for each city :Eeek:, which seems a bit of a faff. I assume our van probably complies as it complies with the London one, still need stickers though.
    It would be really useful if a sticker could be obtained at the border.

    Hi [STRIKE]Nearly [/STRIKE]ReallyRetired,

    Did you read the following remark on their website :

    Countries
    LEZs by Country, showing menu links to the cities operating or planning LEZ schemes.

    Cities shown in Green in the LEFT-HAND menus are already running a LEZ scheme; those shown in Black are confirmed as in planning, or scheduled to start in coming months or years.

    Furthermore the details of f.i. Calenzano in Toscana say :

    Dates and Standards - city
    Until further notice:
    No 2 stroke motorcycles & mopeds
    Minimum standards:
    Petrol cars Euro 2
    Diesel cars Euro 4
    Diesel goods vehicles Euro 2

    Hours of operation - city
    8:30-12:30 and 14:30-18:30 until further notice


    The definitions of the Euro 1 to Euro 5 standard can also be found on this website. In short it means that the higher the number the younger the car must be.

    It really is not a click-through webpage --> it is a carefully read through page !!! If you look at the citymap of Calenzano, i think to see that the mainroad along the city doesnt enter the LEZ Zone

    Sorry I can't find the definitions of the Euro 4 etc standard on this site, doesn't mean they aren't there.

    I think my van is Euro 4 but I don't know if the uprating of the MGW effects this.

    Hi ReallyRetired

    When writing my second message i also wanted to place the link to the page indicating the Euro standards :Rofl1:, but that particular page was not online at that moment :cry:

    But at the moment it is online again: Page 5 of 11 of tab What are Lezs

    My native language is not English so not familiar with many shortenings :Blush: so i have got no idea what you mean with Quote I don't know if the uprating of the [HI]MGW [/HI]effects this Unquote :shout:

    But maybe this page can be of help to you and otherwise the tab Retrofiting can be of help ?

    Regards
    Paul and Ineke

    For Italy just avoid the problem. Park up on some free sosta by a rural railway station and take a cheap train ride into the city centre. Enjoy wine with your lunch. :thumb::thumb:

    Thanks Onderweg. My MH complies with Euro4 so is compliant in all these zones I think.
