Low Emission Zones, a proposal to improve air quality and mobility in the Megalopolis
Low Emission Zones (or Ecozones, as they are called in Mexico) are public policies which seek to reverse high pollutant emissions from mobile sources in city areas which concentrate a large population (resident and in transit). This is done by enforcing the law, and by limiting private cars that have not been verified as well as heavy diesel transportation (freight and passenger), which are visibly polluting, entry into these areas. This policy, in addition to improving living conditions of those who are currently affected, will have indirect impact on the rest of the city, as it promotes an improvement in the transportation sector and generates co-benefits in health, mobility and sustainable urban management.
