Sun is too hot, France prohibits old cars from running on the road

Only electric cars or cars registered under the past 15 years are newly appeared on the streets of Paris and the 79 town around it in the hot sun leads to severe air pollution in France.

The French authorities began to restrict the supply of water in the context of the Western European countries that were experiencing the hot sun, which began to reach control.

The ban of Paris is based on the “Crit’Air “, a vehicle classification system of five levels based on the new old degree and the degree of pollution.

Only electric cars or hydrogen gas fuel, gasoline-powered vehicles registered after 1-2006 and diesel vehicles registered from May 1-2011, respectively levels 1 and 2 in Crit’Air, are allowed to travel on the road.

Traffic through Paris was less cramped and substantial hot after the ban. However, the driver’s status was still noted despite the breach because of the very low fines, 68 euros per child automobile and 135 euros for trucks.

Despite this, it is still considered the most stringent car ban ever applied in Paris, according to AFP.

Under the estimates of AAA data, the ban directly affects about 5 million cars registered in the Ile-de-France region, accounting for about 60% of all registered cars of the whole region-a record number.

The car owners objecting to the ban of vehicles, stating that it did not really help alleviate pollution.

Paris is expected to tighten further the ban since 1-7, which permanently prohibits the vehicles being folded into level 4 according to the Crit’Air system appearing on the A86 ring road. These vehicles are usually diesel-powered vehicles registered from the year 2001-2005 and trucks registered from the year 2006-2009.

Trucks and cars were placed in Crit’Air 5 (diesel engines and were registered in the period 1997-2000), as well as the unclassified vehicles that had been banned from the center of Paris since May 7-2017.

The city council plans to continuously tighten regulations until 2030 when only electric or hydrogen fuel cars appear on roads in the capital.
