  The DVLA (Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency) says it is not
clear why there has been such a surge in the number of older drivers
losing their licence on health grounds。

The measure is activated when levels of harmful nitrogen dioxide in the
atmosphere go above 200 microgrammes per cubic metre in at least two
measuring stations for two days running, and if the air is unlikely to
clear imminently.

“It’s not about traffic restrictions but about the important issue of
public health,” deputy mayor Marta Higueras said. “Lots of people suffer
from breathing problems and are very affected by pollution.”

Four of world’s biggest cities to ban diesel cars from their centres

  banned禁止

The system will be based on a vehicle’s licence plate – odd numbers will
be allowed on the roads one day, even numbers the next.

The new system will give out four different degrees of air pollution
warning – blue, yellow, amber and red, Xinhua news agency reports.

They include taking half of the city’s four million private cars off the
roads on days when there are serious levels of pollution.

  Motorists over 70 are considered to be amongst the safest on the
road。 Many avoid rush-hour and late-night driving and are said to cause
fewer accident-related injuries than younger drivers。

The restrictions will operate between 6.30am and 9pm. The city council
said in a statement: “vehicles with even-number registration plates will
be allowed to drive around on even-number days and cars with odd-number
registration plates on odd-number days”.

Motor vehicles are considered a major source of pollution.

  medical reasons由于医疗原因

On Thursday, city environment councillor Ines Sabanes said the ban would
not be extended as smog levels had dropped by the required amount. Other
measures, including a ban on street parking for non-residents and
reduced speed limits, will continue.

  But more of them than ever are being stopped from driving for
medical reasons。 In 2011 just over 10,000 over-70s were banned because
of their health。 By last year, that figure had risen by a third to
nearly 13,000 drivers。

There are exceptions to the ban, such as for mopeds, hybrid cars, those
carrying three people or more or used by disabled people. Buses, taxis
and emergency vehicles are also exempt.
