News about the Crit'Air, the environmental zones and air pollution

The absence of a Crit’Air vignette will be sanctioned starting July 1, 2017

A recent decree has determined that driving without a Crit’Air vignette in French environmental zones as of July 1, 2017, shall be financially sanctioned. So far, the government had allowed a period of transition, although old vehicles were already being sanctioned. Fines will range from 68 to 300 euros (category 3), depending on the type of vehicle. Foreign vehicles will also be sanctioned.
