‘Dirty’ cars could face higher parking fees

The owners of environment-unfriendly cars could find themselves paying higher parking charges if junior home affairs minister Ank Bijleveld gets her way.

Her plan is to be discussed by the cabinet on Friday but was leaked to RTL Nieuws on Tuesday night.
