Older Vehicles Banned From Paris


Recommended Posts

I received the confirmation letter about three weeks ago but still no sign of the actual disc. Anybody else still waiting?

Paris has some of the worst pollution of all the major European Cities. On a sunny summers day if you are in the correct position and look towards the city you can see the whole place shrouded in in

Paris, Lyons and Grenoble are three cities that require cars to display a sticker showing their Emission Levels. This is similar to the scheme operating in Germany.   Cost only a few Euros and, i

It seems to me that someone says 'it would invalidate your insurance' in almost every threat here, so I thought I would say it first.

It does seem a great shame that older vehicles are not recognised for their greenness.

 

Every time my old car goes through another MOT it is another new car that isn't being built.

 

The difference between the emissions my car may chuck out compared to the environmental impact of a new build, from raw materials to showroom floor (plus their subsequent emissions in use) must be either negligible or weighted in my car's favour.

 

Perhaps Paris should also pull down all its old draughty buildings which cost so much in energy to heat and rebuild a whole new shiny eco-city powered by solar and wind and be completely devoid of history, character and soul.

 

I will continue to drive about in my old 1980s car, dragging my older 1970s caravan with a clear conscience. . . and get the RER into Paris like I've always done.

I've a Citroen DS (1967, not the modern one) and I can't now get to the Quai Andre Citroen in Paris where the damn thing was made!

Oh dear! Over 3 weeks for me since I got my invoice. Perhaps we'll have to wait the 6 weeks the newspapers were reporting last week, in spite of the 30 day promise on the French website.

It's arrived! Dropped through the letterbox this morning. Posted 2 days ago so they obviously have a strange priority order for despatching the stickers.

I'm just bring this back into the current topics again as the clean air 'Crit Air' sticker is now required in a lot more areas.   Apparently whole departements have 'gone clean' or are going to do and will now require you to have a sticker.   This link explains which departements are affected and it now looks as if those of us who thought we didn't need a sticker because we don't go near cities may have to think again.

Obviously we'll all need to keep an eye out for high pollution levels too, so it's hope they are investing the money raised in some sort of 'flagging up' system for 'non-App users' which indicates pollution levels and which categories of vehicle are allowed in.

The website does admit (somewhere) that it's now difficult for non-residents (and I think it's addressed to people who don't live in a particular place) to work out just what is required where - so it's going to even more difficult for people just passing through on their holidays

Thanks Val. I'd previously assumed we'd be in the clear as we don't drive into cities but maybe not. I suppose I'd better get a sticker. .....

Having witnessed street parking in Paris where the car parking just pushed another car further along the road to get into a space, I for one would never want to drive into Paris whatever age my car! Many of the cars I did see parked had dents possibly from similar parking etiquete.

dents are a badge of honour, note the cars with a 75 regional number, that' s paris reg district
