Passenger cars

Concerning Passenger Cars AMVIR pursues the following:

  • The abolishment of vehicle purchase taxation since the public revenue are primarily coming from the taxation on circulation (road tax, fuels, etc).
  • The introduction of "incentives" on the use of new, safe and clean cars and "disincentives" on the use of older, unsafe and polluting cars. 
  • The reform of the "Green Ring" measure through the issuing of a card to enter the city center, the cost of which will range based on the emissions technology of the car while its revenue will be used to finance actions related to road transport and environment.
  • The proper implementation of the"Green Ring" measure from Traffic Police by conducting intensive inspections so as the community to reap the benefits.
  • The adoption of a new system that restricts or permits the circulation of cars in Athens' city center, according to the vehicles' emissions, since the current system (based on the vehicles' number plate) is severely outdated.
  • The improvement and maintenance of the fleet’s good condition through constant technical monitoring carried out by the Periodical Technical Inspection Centers.
  • The investment of a proportion of State’s revenue coming from taxes imposed on cars in order to improve road infrastructure.
