If these vehicles cause a lot of pollution, then it may be better to ban. But there should be an alternative in the form of cheaper (subsidized) electric vehicles powered by solar energy, etc. before they enforce the ban.

The tribunal will be sidelined by democratic action of people who will not comply.
The government will obey democracy.
Net result, nothing of significance will happen.
