How do you recognise the low-emission zone (LEZ)?
Pay attention to the traffic signs
If you drive in and out
The low-emission zone can be identified by these signs. This traffic sign is also used in other low-emission zones in Belgium. The signs indicate you are entering or leaving the low-emission zone. You are inside the low-emission zone once you have passed the first sign. Smart cameras in the low-emission zone check the number plates of vehicles passing by. If you enter the LEZ with a vehicle that does not meet the entry requirements, you will be fined. So always check your vehicle before entering the low-emission zone.
If you are almost there
The blue signs will be installed at a certain distance from the low-emission zone. These signs will indicate the final possibilities for drivers to opt for a different route if they want to avoid the zone. This will make it impossible to enter the low-emission zone by accident.
