Last week we could experience some smog restrictions in Budapest as only those with paried or impaired licenseplates were allowed to drived on selected days. Now much larger restrictions are on the way. From October 20 this year all cars that has a yellow hexagonal sign below the dash on the licenseplate will be restricted when it comes to driving within Budapest. Those with a green color on the hexagonal sign below the dash will be free to drive. The restrictions will last from October 20 to March 8.
Those cars without catalysts will be suffering because of this, also those with a non regulated catalyst, and also most old cars from before 1998.
Below you can see a map from Origo showing where only those with green hexagons can drive between October 20 and March 8. Read full article about this here (Origo – Hungarian)
