The ZPA environmental zone in Paris

In case of an air pollution peak in Paris, a ZPA zone will be established as well. This zone of air protection will be declared in the same way as the ones in Lyon and Grenoble are, namely by the city’s and the Paris region’s prefect.

The area of the so-called “zone of air protection of Paris” includes all cities and municipalities of the surrounding of Paris and of the inner area of the A86 highway (Paris metropolitan area).
In this ZPA environmental zone of the Paris metropolitan area, traffic restrictions in the case of air pollution peak are valid for all highways, national roads and streets in the region.
Both the airport of Paris Charles de Gaulle and Paris Orly are located outside this zone and are therefore, just like Disney Land Paris (Euro Disney), not affected by these restrictions.

The violation of these traffic restrictions will be sanctioned with category 2 fines and 35 euros. Since the metropolitan area of Paris, with its zone of air protection, is not a city, no ZCR signs will be installed, in contrast to the usual signs to be found at the borders of the city of Paris (inside the boulevard périphérique).

Since the ZCR zona of Paris finds itself inside the ZPA zona of Paris, in case of air pollution peak traffic restrictions in the ZPA zone will also be valid for the ZCR zone. As soon as the ZPA zona ceases to be valid, because of e.g. an improvement in the weather, then the specific norms of the ZCR zone will be applicable again.

Table overview of the environmental zone

Name of the environmental zone: ZPA Paris

Date of announcement of the zone: 11.2016

Date of entry into effect of the zone: 01.01.2017

Type of environmental zone: Zone of air protection, depends on the weather situation and is activated on the 5th day of an air pollution peak (> 80 µg/m³ fine dust particles) after the warning alarm level is over (> 50 µg/m³ fine dust particles).

Current obligation to drive with a badge: For cars, trucks, buses, light utility vehicles and light vehicles with two, three and four wheels, as of the 5th day of an air pollution peak.

Badge classes allowed as of 01.07.2016: E, 1, 2, 3. Classes 4 and 5, depending on the level and the duration of the air pollution peak (cleanest class = E and 1).

Future restrictions planned for badge classes: Information currently unavailable.

Not allowed to drive (temporarily): Vehicles without a sufficiently high class of Crit’Air vignette, depending on the level and duration of the air pollution peak.

Not allowed to drive (permanently): Information currently unavailable.

Fines: From 35 to 375 euros.

Area/ extension of the environmental zone: The ZPA zone of air protection of Paris entails all neighboring cities and municipalities outside the city of Paris and inside the Paris highway ring A86 (metropolitan area of Paris). In this ZPA environmental zone of the metropolitan area of Paris, driving bans in case of an air pollution peak apply to all highways, country roads and roads of the region. Both the Paris Charles de Gaulle and Paris Orly airports, as well as Disney Land Paris (Euro Disney), are located outside this zone and are thus not affected by driving bans.

Special features: After the activation of the air pollution peak, driving bans and traffic restrictions for badge classes are also valid inside the ZCR zone Grenoble, for it is located inside the ZPA zone.
