Traffic restrictions have been introduced at one of the main access points to Italy's Dolomite mountains in a bid to tackle overcrowding during the summer tourism season. The goal of the project is to reduce traffic access to the mountains, a Unesco World Heritage site, by around 20%, in order to reduce pollution and protect the natural area. 

 The area beyond the Sella Pass has been designated a limited traffic zone (ZTL) meaning vehicles can only enter with a pass valid for one hour. The restrictions will be in place Monday to Friday between 9am and 4pm until August 31st, and apply to motorcycles and cars with only a few exceptions: electric vehicles, public transport, and vehicles of people who work or are staying within the area.
