Ztl, restricted traffic zone (english)

Aggiornato al: 19/04/2018

Ztl stands for restricted traffic zone. It is an area that surrounds the historical center in which access and circulation are restricted to specific categories of drivers and vehicles. The Ztl has been adopted in Vicenza since 1996.
Local police officers are entrusted with the control regarding the regularity of accesses. The control is carried out even through an electronic control system (electronic control passages) by means of specific video cameras able to reveal the plate number of the vehicles within the Ztl. When a vehicle crosses the zone, video cameras record the plate number and send it to the control system which verifies whether the vehicle is authorized or not. Data and images are treated in full compliance with privacy regulations. (Legislative Decree No. 193/2003).
