Swedish city will ban all vintage cars without catalytic converters

It may be the end of vintage cars in Sweden's capital Stockholm. The city council wants to ban this kind without a catalytic converter.

Sweden exempts cars older than 30 years from taxes. After that, the cars are veterans on the other side of Øresund. In the future, however, the number of vintage cars in the Swedish cityscape may become very small.

At least in Stockholm. The city government in the Swedish capital will ban vintage cars without catalytic converters.

This is what the De Gröna environmental party writes in a press release .

– We want to fill Sveavägen with human life rather than motor vehicles.

– Through car-free weekends, we can create space for market trade, flea markets, outdoor dining, cultural events and Christmas markets, writes Lars Strömgren (MP), traffic councilor in Stockholm municipality.

Stockholm aims to reduce car traffic by 30 percent. Among other things, by banning petrol and diesel cars in the central part of the city. In fact, the ban has already been passed. Read more about it here .

De Gröna has already succeeded in banning a traditional car rally in the Swedish capital, but a traffic researcher believes that much stricter measures are needed.

People must be forced out of the cars by, among other things, to ban all speeds above 20 km/h in the cities. Read more about it here.

Back to vintage cars, it may actually be possible to get around the ban if it were to be adopted. At least in a car with Swedish license plates. A catalytic converter became mandatory for all passenger cars within the EU on 1 October 1990.

Here at home, vintage cars are not yet punished nearly as severely as the Swedes plan to do. Although the cars must be 35 years old, they can, among other things, not penalized in certain Danish zones. Read more here .
