What is a low emission zone, and why is it more expensive in the low emission zones?

There is a low emission zone in Copenhagen, Frederiksberg, Odense, Aarhus and Aalborg.

In these areas many citizens are more exposed to air pollution and noise from the truck traffic and traffic accidents involving heavy vehicles. Therefore it will be 50 percent more expensive to drive in the low emission zones compared to the rest of the road network.
