Driving Through Paris? You May Need A Sticker For That

Many of us find ourselves¬†travelling through Paris on route to a French carp fishing holiday. However, if you plan on doing this it is important to note that you will now need to apply for a ‘pollution sticker’ beforehand.

The sticker system indicates how green your vehicle is and will apply for vehicles travelling anywhere inside the peripherique ring road between Monday-Friday.

There are six categories and colours, depending on the vehicle’s year of registration and emissions – in worst cases certain vehicles¬†will be banned from driving within central Paris during set hours. You can find out more information on the requirements¬†here.

The sticker scheme became mandatory on Monday, however foreign-registered vehicles have been given until March 2017 to obtain their stickers, costing ‚ā¨4.18 each and¬†payable online.¬†Fines start at ‚ā¨68, so it isn’t really worth risking going without!
