It seems so often the case that proposed regulations start out quite high and are then bartered down when the affected parties complain loud enough. This could again be the case with European Union legislation targeting automobile emissions. When the laws were first being considered, the bar was set at 120 grams of C02 per kilometer for an entire automaker's fleet of vehicles. First, we heard news that German car companies may be able to negotiate a break on these requirements, and now we hear that the entire industry could get a few more years via a graduated scale to bring their offerings in line with the law. After all is said and done, we wonder what the legislation will look like, if it ever goes through at all.
