Good

The decrease in SO2 emissions from transport is significantly influenced by the tightening of legislation governing the concentration of sulphur in liquid fuels (since 2009, it has been limited to 10 mg/kg for both petrol and diesel). The limit value of concentration of sulphur in fuels used in road transport in 2015 was not exceeded in Slovenia or in the EU-28; the same applies to air and maritime transport.

Bad

The main source of environmental (ambient) noise is transport. Road traffic is the most widespread source. Percentage of the population exposed to different noise levels is high. People in urban areas are exposed to the highest levels of noise, because of concentration of population and traffic in the cities. Most worrying is a significant increase in noise at night, because people are most sensitive to noise at that time.

Good

Although sustainable transport planning at the regional and local levels has no tradition in Slovenia, the situation has been improving in recent years.  An integrated approach was introduced after joining the EU. Nowadays, more and more municipalities respond to the incentives of the EU and the Ministry of Infrastructure. They prepare and implement Sustainable Urban Mobility Plans (SUMPs).

Bad

In Slovenia, as well as in other European countries, the proportion of the vehicle fleet that complies with the latest and most stringent emissions standards increased sharply in the period 2011–2015 in all categories of vehicles. The penetration rate of new technology is highest in the category of diesel cars. In Slovenia, the penetration rate of new technologies and introduction of the latest EURO emission standards is lowest in the category of two-wheelers (i.e. mopeds and motorcycles), while it is highest in the category of city buses and heavy-duty vehicles.
