Sanya scraps 3,571 yellow label vehicles in 2014 in anti-air pollution efforts
The city has implemented bans and control measures regarding heavily polluting vehicles in urban areas. According to the plan, about 20,000 heavily polluting vehicles will be prohibited from driving on roads by the end of this December.
Yellow label vehicles are among those that do not meet the National Emission Standard Level 1 (gasoline engine), or Level 3 (Diesel engine).
Sanya is known for its best air quality in China due to favorable weather conditions. Residents hope this will continue to be true. The city will continue to phase out the heavily polluting vehicles to improve air quality.
