Eco-Friendly Dilemma: Rome Adjusts Traffic Rules on Third Car-Free Sunday

Eco-Friendly week end celebration. An environmental Sunday, occurring amidst heightened pollution from microscopic particles, has sparked some debate. Today, on January 14, the third designated car-free day of the season is slated in Rome. This decision was made some time ago, with a municipal ordinance enforcing a halt to private traffic in the green belt between 7:30 and 11:30 and later from 16:30 to 20:30.

The conclusion of the morning restriction has been advanced by an hour, aiming to facilitate the arrival of Lazio fans at the Stadio Olimpico.

Eco-Friendly Sunday Schedule: 

The timing of the Ecological Sunday is stipulated by the decree signed by Rome’s mayor, Roberto Gualtieri. The alteration pertains to the morning period, which will conclude at 11:30 instead of the previously scheduled 12:30. The rationale behind this adjustment, as stated by the Capitol, is, “This modification follows the request of the Local Police of Rome, aimed at ensuring better management of public order aspects in anticipation of scheduled events, including the Lazio-Lecce football match at the Olympic stadium, expecting an influx of spectators, including those from Puglia.”

Exemptions apply to vehicles deemed less pollutant, including electric, hybrid, methane, or biofuel, as well as Euro 6 petrol vehicles. The concentration of harmful fine particles, detrimental to the human body, is noteworthy. According to the Arpa control units, the capital had already exceeded the average value of PM10 on January 10, recording 55 micrograms per cubic meter. Forecasts indicate that this exceedance will persist not only for today but also for tomorrow and Monday 15, with comparable values for PM2.5.

MORNING INSPECTIONS

During the ecological Sunday in Rome, 65 violations were identified from over 700 inspections conducted in the morning. Adhering to the mayor of Roma Capitale’s ordinance on scheduled traffic restrictions, the Roma Capitale police implemented customary surveillance services in the area. Patrols carried out over 700 inspections in the morning slot from 7:30 to 11:30, leading to the detection of 65 violations. Inspections will continue into the afternoon slot, concluding at 20:30.
