What kind of stuff would you like to carry? I guess if you drive a normal, passenger car you should not be afraid about any control - simply they would not be interested in stopping you

I'm guessing he wants to know if there are any delays to be expected at border crossings.

I imagine how long delays would be if Belgium decides to impose border controls on inbound traffic from the Netherlands for whatever reason.

In the past year I crossed A-D border every month, at Passau and Salzburg. In 90% of the cases there were random controls, but the lost time was no longer than 10 minutes. You just have to drive slowly through the check point, and they just wave you through...

Temperatures took quite a jump in the Netherlands. The past 5 weeks had more or less cool to cold spring weather significantly below normal, many days hardly cracked 10 - 13 °C. But today there were summer-like temperatures.

The average July high is 22 °C. Though 30 °C is pretty common every summer, but usually not weeks on end. Today reached 28 °C which is 10 °C above average. Tomorrow may be even a few degrees warmer, it would be interesting to see if it can crack the 30 °C mark (which is considered 'tropical' in Dutch climatology).

The internet says you can buy the sticker at major gas stations. You can also order it online.

Yes, you need an Umweltplakette, almost the whole area of Cologne is environmental area (Umweltzone). Only green stickers are allowed.
You can't buy it in any gas station, but in many ones.

I would prefer to visit some car service or ADAC point to buy the Umweltplakette. There you might be sure that you can buy it and it would not cost more than €5. To be honest, I have never heard about buing the Umweltplakette at any gas station, while checked it well before one travel to Berlin. Any car dealership is a proper destination

I don't think you can buy Umweltplakette at gas stations. I had to buy mine at TÜV, and they wanted my car registration papers. I don't think a pump guy is qualified

They'll just have to match the vehicle emission type on the registration papers with the type of environmental sticker. I'm guessing they can feed the type approval into a system that says which sticker they are eligible for.

I've never got one at a fuel station, but websites point out it is possible at major fuel stations.

France also introduced a 'Crit Air' vignette this year. You need it in Paris, Lyon and Grenoble so far, but it is expected to be rolled out in many more cities. I ordered the Crit Air vignette on the government website, it cost like € 4 and it was mailed to my home address. I needed to upload a photo of my registration certificate.

Kind of weird to see the Netherlands in a list of hottest cities in Europe today...

Because it would be too mainstream to ask the Germans about using their kind of sticker.

How stringent are checks for such sticker? Could I take just green circle and tape to window instead?
This stupid thing really should be resisted more forcefully... even if just by some EU-directive that cars meeting a certain emissions class get a particular sticker on the number plate, in all EU countries.

I ordered my sticker yesterday. Let us see what happens.

Quite a clumsy way to prove your car is manufactured no earlier than 2003. But so German: the more bureaucracy the better.

As I said before, the EU should pass a measure to stop all this non-sense. Create a EU-wide "environmental sticker" based on EURO standards. Disallow any other classification of vehicles other than by their weight, size, fuel and EURO standard. Introduce a standard EURO traffic sign to make clear who can and cannot operate a vehicle (like the ones they have for weight and size...)

I agree. These are the things EU should really pursue: these little things that make actually our life easier and make us feel like we're living in one big nation.
For instance, during my trip to Norway and Svalbard Islands I used for the first time free roaming cell phone connection, and it was incredibly helpful in many situations.

June 15th is really a big day for telecommunication in Europe, with introduction of free roaming also for data. It means I can get only single data plan and never bother again with pesky unsecured WiFi, or data caps.

Something I think EU did a while ago and is really helpful is the European Health Insurance Card scheme.
