Traffic in Belgium

In Belgium it is mandatory to have a 60 km sticker visible on the back of a truck.

An environmental zone (Low Emission Zone (LEZ)) was established in the Brussels-Capital Region in 2018. A paid day pass must be purchased for some vehicles.

Exceptions aside, it is no longer possible to drive into the center of Ghent with motorized vehicles, unless a permit has been obtained for this.

With effect from 1 February 2017, an environmental zoning is in force in Antwerp.

Trucks with EURO standard I, II and III can now only enter Antwerp's city center under certain conditions.

Trucks with EURO standard III without a particulate filter can enter downtown all year round, but have to buy a ticket for € 30 per day per day.
