Recall that from 1 July 2015, the municipality of the French capital has banned operation of buses and trucks manufactured before October 1, 2001

Paris mayor Anne Hidalgo has a broader perspective about the plan to “Antsiranana”, which will evolve for several more years. For example, by 2020 all cars driving on diesel, will be “eliminated”, and this rule is, according to the mayor, its main goal. Indeed, according to the latest figures of the state health Agency “Santé Publique France”, air pollution every year leads to death 2441 inhabitants of Central Paris and 4166 in the surrounding suburbs.

In Paris, total 50000 older machines (released up to 1997) and 3,000 motorcycle production until 1999. At the level of the Paris region (Ile-de-France), in the car Park accounted for slightly more than 6 million vehicles in particular, and 420 thousand of them manufactured before 1997 and motorcycles 13000, released before 1999

However, the Paris city hall believes that, in reality, the restrictions will apply only to the 4400 cars, 1300 3700 vans and motorcycles.

Operating since 1991, the European rules governing the allocation of air pollutants have become stricter over the years. So, “the old machine of course will be much more polluting than a new car”, said the Director of the Observatory of the air quality “Airparif” Karin Leger French edition Lemonde.fr.

In fact, from October 1 will be fined 35 euros for a vehicle, in violation of the injunction. And early next year this penalty will increase to 68 euros for passenger cars and 135 Euro for freight.

And what do the owners of expensive retro cars released before 1997? It remains to wait for the weekend when you can go to Paris without threatening to descend on the fine.
