China might have found a permanent solution to that smoke that has been building up in Beijing for years, as starting next June, any vehicles with that have been labelled as “green” by local authorities will be the only cars that can enter the city centre.
According to Gasgoo, vehicles will be rated either a green label or a yellow label, with certain roads restricted to yellow-labelled cars in Beijing. The standard for a yellow-label car means that your car is a high emission or polluting car.
From October of this year, restrictions are said to be tighter for yellow-labelled cars. No words if this will expand, but maybe China has finally done something environmental.
