The first limited traffic zone in Rome was established on the 16th of November , 1995 and was called LTZ Centro Storico.
The creation of this area has three main purposes:
- the preservation of the historical and archaeological heritage of the Eternal City
- the improvement of weather conditions burdened by strong indicators of pollution
- encouraging the use of public transport
Since the Municipality has created other limited traffic zones, scattered within the municipal area, and they are regulated differently for days, times and boundaries of areas.
So motorists which don’t know the city well and intend to go to Rome, should pay attention to these areas with limited traffic and its related decisions not to run into quite expensive penalties.
