Second-hand Vehicles Banned in Paris in 2019

The socialist mayor of Paris, Anne Hidalgo, announced in early April that second-hand vehicles (over 5 years old) will no longer be allowed to be registered in Paris from 1 July 2019. This measure aims to reduce the number of Diesel vehicles, and to exclude the oldest from the capital. By this means, the mayor hopes to encourage Parisians to choose newer vehicles.
