As of Tuesday, June 1, all Crit’Air 4 and more vehicles are no longer allowed to circulate within the A86 enclosure.
Many feared the implementation of this measure, here it is finally applied, while it had already been mentioned for a few years already. While the government wants to do everything to reduce the place of the car in large cities and above all, limit the circulation of vehicles deemed to be polluting, a new step has just been taken this Tuesday June 1. Indeed, while only Paris has so far been affected by traffic bans for certain cars, their access is now prohibited throughout the perimeter of the A86 motorway, starting this morning. As in the capital, this measure applies during the week, from Monday to Friday from 8 am to 8 pm. During this time, all vehicles equipped with Crit’Air sticker 4 and 5 as well as those said to be “unclassified” are therefore prohibited from driving in Greater Paris, which has become an EPZ since July 2019.
At that date, only Crit’Air 5 and vehicles produced before 1993 were banned. What changes here is that a greater number of cars will now be banned, while the Crit’Air sticker 4 concerns all diesel vehicles registered before 2006, as well as two-wheelers placed on the market before mid-2004. HGVs, buses and coaches from before 2010 are also affected by this measure, which was already in place in inner Paris since last year. But contrary to what one might think, not all municipalities are in fact affected by these restrictions, some being simply opposed to them. This is particularly the case of Bobigny and Créteil, the mayor of the latter qualifying this measure as ” unacceptable border “. Some cities are planning to postpone the implementation of this new ban, such as Romainville, which launched a public consultation available until June 16.
No verbalizations for the moment
This is little consolation for all the motorists affected by this measure, but you should know that no verbalization is planned before the end of the year in the Greater Paris area, unlike the capital, which has already been punishing offenders for a long time. The official site of the Metropolis indeed underlines that ” a period of random and educational checks was put in place to explain what the ZFE is and how to be supported in its change of mobility, including through financial aid. The State plans to deploy a control system by the end of 2021 “. You should also know that the A86 motorway is not affected by this measure.
Later, Crit’Air 3 vehicles will be banned in this perimeter in July 2022, i.e. gasoline registered between 1997 and 2006 as well as diesel between 2006 and 2011. In January 2024, it will be the Crit ‘Air 2 which will be banned, ie all diesel vehicles and gasoline before 20211. The goal? Eventually ban the circulation of all thermal vehicles in Paris and its inner suburbs by 2030.
