Attention! Due to heavy air pollution in Madrid, tomorrow 28.12.2018 only vehicles with a Spanish environmental badge will be allowed to drive. Initially, this only affects the zone located within the M-30 ring road. If the air still deteriorates, however, driving without a badge will be banned from other areas.

Tourists and truck drivers travelling to Madrid between Christmas and New Year have to observe the traffic situation closely, as the air quality in the Spanish capital is poor. For this reason, the competent authority has imposed driving bans within the “M-30” environmental zone. It was recommended to leave these driving bans until 31.12.2018, but they could also be lifted before if the air quality improves. You can always check the current entry status on distintivo-ambiental.es or in the free Green-Zones App. Since it is not yet possible for vehicles registered outside Spain to obtain a Spanish „Distintivo Ambiental“, foreign vehicles should not enter the M-30 environmental zone during an air pollution peak. The borders of the environmental zone can also be found on our website www.distintivo-ambiental.es as well as in the free Green-Zones App.
