Faced with popular outcry, the State was forced to scale back with low-emission mobility zones (ZFE-m) and ended up finding a way to satisfy the population. On July 10, the Minister of Ecological Transition and Territorial Cohesion of France Christophe Béchu made an announcement that surprised more than one. Because they still do not respect the regulatory thresholds for nitrogen dioxide set by the World Health Organization (WHO), only 5 metropolises will have to continue their efforts to reduce emissions and will even be forced to ban all vehicles carrying a Crit’Air 3 sticker by 2025. Other metropolises become simple “vigilance territories” and will not have to go further than the simple ban on Crit’Air 5 models to keep it simple, always in 2025.
Lyon falls into the first category. The timetable was set before the latest government announcements. The next step is coming soon.
Ban on Crit’Air 4 models as of January 1, 2024
Also the official website of the city of Lyon he said with a welcome little booster shot. On January 1, the ban which previously applied to Crit’Air 5 and unclassified private vehicles as well as utility models and Crit’Air 4, 5 and unclassified heavy goods vehicles will extend to vehicles individuals and Crit’Air 4 two-wheelers. More precisely, this means that cars registered for the first time before December 31, 2005 as well as motorized two-wheelers registered for the first time will no longer be able to circulate within the perimeter of the ZFE. times before June 30, 2004.
As was the case until then, the ban is valid 7 days a week, 24 hours a day. While the simple act of parking is punishable by a fine of 68 euros for motorized two-wheelers, passenger vehicles and LCV (3rd class fine) and 135 euros for bulky vehicles (heavy goods vehicles, coaches and coaches, 4th class fine).
The city specifies that the ban will apply to Crit’Air 3 on January 1, 2025 and, more surprisingly, to Crit’Air 2 on January 1, 2028. However, it is not required to go that far in terms of restrictions. Will she really pursue this goal to its conclusion? Stay tuned, up close.
