While Low Emission Zones (ZFE) are set to become widespread in France, here are the 45 agglomerations concerned by the implementation of these perimeters.
Low Emission Zones are set to impose themselves in the daily life of French motorists. These perimeters excluding vehicles considered the most polluting will be implemented little by little in France.
By 2025, all agglomerations with more than 150,000 inhabitants will have one. Which therefore represents 45 such perimeters, in which the circulation of certain vehicles will be restricted. Here are the agglomerations and metropolises affected by this measure:
- Douai Lens
- Paris – Metropolis of Greater Paris
- Saint Etienne
- Saint Nazaire
- Le Mans
- Le Havre
What perimeters for ZFEs in France?
For each of these agglomerations, the scope will vary and may evolve. Thus, the ZFE of Lyon was to concern the capital of Gaul, as well as the surrounding municipalities of Caluire-et-Cuire and Villeurbanne.
However, it was decided at the end of last September that by September 2023, the latter will extend in particular towards the east and the south. The municipalities of Saint-Priest, Vaulx-en-Velin or even Décineswill thus be affected by this measure.
It cannot therefore be ruled out that the metropolises or agglomerations concerned by the establishment of a ZFE decide to change it over time. This is due to the demographic evolution. So much data that can influence the decision to set up these Low Emission Zones in France.
It should be remembered that the purpose of the EPZs is to exclude vehicles judged to be the most polluting according to the Crit’Air sticker system. This is to improve the air quality in these areas. The social risks of such a measure are however pointed out by politicians and associations.
