From what I've read over the years, they might have massive, well organized 
strikes; blocking roads, etc.; just like the French farmers did several years 
ago. Don't recall any riots; at least any recent riots.

> times more than the legal NOx limit while Renault-Nissan vehicles exceed the

> T&A, however, said that the better performance of Volkswagen Euro 6 cars had

> “Volkswagen is not the carmaker producing the diesel cars with highest 
> nitrogen oxides emissions and the failure to investigate other companies 
> brings disgrace on the European regulatory system,” says Greg Archer.
