New environmental zone in France

On February 25, the prefect of the département Haute-Savoie announced the introduction of a new environmental zone in the area of the valley of the river Arve. The obligation to carry a Crit’Air vignette will at first only be mandatory for trucks. In the case of a peak of air pollution, trucks with vignettes of color 4 and 5 will not be allowed to drive through this area. It is expected for a decree to give legal shape to this measure.
