Residents and Environmentalists are increasingly demanding better air quality. Because pollution levels are falling too slowly, the European Commission has now filed a lawsuit against Germany.At the same time, the growing number of referendums by and for cyclists such as in Berlin and Frankfurt, are calling for a fairer share of the space in inner-cities and for security.According to the city's assessment, Hamburg's air pollution problem is much larger than originally expected and affects even more people's health.
