Do you find that the City of Paris’ plans to reduce car traffic are open to criticism? You are not the only one. The capital’s police headquarters itself criticizes municipal representatives for what they want to put in place.
In the sights of these critics: the fact that the town hall is moving forward alone to present its projects. Which complicates the work of the prefecture. The sub-prefect, Elise Lavielle, deplored this, this Thursday, February 8, in a debate at the Paris Council on the local mobility plan (PLM) that Anne Hidalgo must provide at the beginning of 2025:
According to her, “the city of Paris most often favors an isolated and independent presentation of its projects”. A “parcel vision”Who “makes the analysis work of our services extremely complicated”. This particularly affects “the measurement of the effects (of) carryover” of circulation and makes it “extremely complex, even impossible in certain cases”.
The ZTL or the speed drop on the device criticized
This is particularly true for limited traffic zone (ZTL) or speed reduction projects on the ring road. “Certain projects that we consider major are not subject to any impact study”still affirms Elise Lavielle.
For this first measure, the police headquarters is not “still don’t agree” to include the high quays of the right bank of the Seine and the islands of la Cité and Saint-Louis, continues our interlocutor. The fault of one “lack of readability” for drivers. Enough to “lead to uncontrollable behavior, with congestion on certain routes”.
Regarding the reduction from 70 km/h to 50 km/h on the ring road, the sub-prefect points out “a certain number of incompatibilities with the legal framework”. A project to which the government is particularly opposed.
