Fine dusts and nitrogen oxides have an effect on our health

The French government hopes that by introduction of the Crit'Air Vignette the corresponding directives of the EU regarding air pollutants and the population's health will be reached as soon as possible.
According to the government's opinion, a quick reduction of pollutants will be the result from the coupling of the Crit'Air categories to the European emission standards (EURO standard 1-6d) and the first registration date of vehicles. Especially a noticeable reduction of nitrogen oxides (NOx), fine dusts (PM), hydrocarbons (HC), and carbon monoxide (CO) is expected.
