It's part of an anti-pollution plan announced by City Hall
Barcelona City Hall is considering, as part of an energy-saving and anti-pollution plan presented on Tuesday, banning vehicles which are older than 10 years from the city’s streets.
They make up 3% of the vehicles on the city’s streets and, according to City Hall, are responsible for 11% of the pollution which comes from nitrogen oxides and particle pollutants.
