In 1992 Japan introduced an Automobile NOx Control Law (ANCL) to improve urban air quality. A key feature of the law was a ban on high-emitting diesel vehicles from registering in designated areas after certain grace periods. In this paper we use location-specific data to evaluate the effect of this geographically-focused policy on nitrogen dioxide (NO2) pollution and land values.
