“Schwäbische Zeitung” (Ravensburg): in good time before the end of the year, the Federal Minister of transport, Andreas Scheuer (CSU) has the technical requirements for the retrofitting of older Diesel engines with modern exhaust gas cleaners. The Minister sees his task in the fight against driving bans as done.

Because for them, the Federal government assumes the costs associated with them. Millions of private owners of older Diesel models, the Federal government continues to stand in the rain. You would have to pay according to the current state of things, even for a modern cat.

The risks are too great. What should come out of such a mess?

If the coalition government gets to feel 2019, the anger of hundreds of thousands of Diesel owners who feel duped, then to the right. Like the Minister of transport Scheuer have finally presented the Standards for the technology: The crucial issues are solved. The financing is unclear. And there is still no solution, who is liable in the end, when after the retrofit, the performance of the vehicle is reduced, the fuel consumption rises or technical problems occur.
