The European Parliament Thursday postponed a vote on new car pollution limits that could have killed a compromise agreed by EU members, as politicians argue over whether to seek tougher limits despite the delays that would entail.With strong political momentum for stricter emission limits after the Volkswagen scandal, the assembly had been due to vote next week on a parliamentary proposal to reject a compromise agreed by representatives of the 28 European Union nations in October.The current EU proposal aims to close the gap between vehicles emissions tests and real road conditions from 2017 to curb toxic discharges that have surged to more than seven times their European limits.If parliament rejects the proposal, it could mean a delay of around two years while the EU executive drafts a new one.
