The ZCR environmental zone Paris

The environmental zone of Paris
The first environmental zone ZCR (Zones à Circulation Restreinte) has been introduced already on 1st September 2015 in Paris. First of all only buses and trucks with a registration before 1st October 2001 were forbidden to enter the environmental zone.
Since 1st July 2016 no passenger cars and small cars (N1 <3,5 t) with a registration before 1st January 1997 are permitted to enter the environmental zone because these vehicles obtain no longer a Crit'Air Vignette in combination with their registration date. This is also recognisable in the Crit'Air Vignette's Categorization List.

Prohibited entries into the environmental zone are applied, by the way, always from Monday to Friday between 8 am and 8 pm, although this is not expressively recognisable on the additional label.
Old buses M2 and M3 as well as trucks N2 and N3, however, are concerned by the driving ban from Monday to Sunday as far as these cars are registered before 1st January 2001.

The car driver who will not respect the interdiction will pay a fine of 68 Euro from 15th January 2017. The fines are higher for bigger vehicles, however, and administrative fee will be imposed, too, therefore a prison sentence threatens in case of a non-payment. For this reason the system of fines in detail is supposed to be observed strictly
Vehicles being registered abroad are subject to a transitional arrangement, by the way. They are allowed to enter the environmental zone of Paris without a Crit'Air Vignette until 31st March 2017.

26.01.2017 – From today, the traffic restrictions are no longer applied in Paris. This means that all the vehicles are allowed to drive, regardless of the category of Crit’Air vignette they are bearing. The weather conditions in the region Ile-de-France (the region around Paris) lead to a dissolving of the fine particulates and the traffic restrictions applied in the past few days helped to reduce the air pollution.

25.01.2017 – Despite a reduction of the pollution rate, the traffic restrictions remain today in Paris. This means that the vehicles not bearing any Crit’Air vignette (because they are too old) and the vehicles bearing the vignette 5 are not allowed to drive in Paris and its near suburb.
In Grenoble and Lyon, the measures of traffic restrictions are also maintained today.

23.01.2017 - Because of a new pollution peak, the cities of Paris and Lyon introduced on 23.01.2017 for the first time the differentiate traffic with the help of the Crit’Air vignette.
For Paris, the vehicles bearing the vignette 5 (and vehicles without vignette) are banned from the traffic in the cities inside the highway A86 (Paris and near suburb).
