If your drivers have to be in the centre of Paris or in one of the 69 communes of the French capital’s inner suburbs, since January of this year it is compulsory to have the so-called ‘Crit air-vignet’ (certificate of air quality or environmental sticker) on the car windscreen. The environmental sticker is also applicable in Grenoble, Lyon and Villeurbanne. In September, the list of cities will be expanded with Strasbourg and surroundings, Lille and Bordeaux.
There are six different Crit’Air stickers, according to the environmental friendliness of the car. Each municipality determines its own rules of the game.
