ZFE: the most polluting vehicles already targeted

Five ZFE-m “low-emission mobility zones” are already in place in France: the Lyon Metropolis, Grand-Paris, the City of Paris, Grenoble and Rouen. In these areas, the circulation and parking of the most polluting vehicles are gradually prohibited within a determined perimeter. Six other EPZs will be added quickly: that of Strasbourg has just entered into force, that of Toulouse awaits its decree, those of Marseille, Nice, Toulon and Montpellier are in gestation. And France will have at least 45 ZFE-m by December 31, 2024 (including Saint-Etienne, which has anticipated the deadline, and Dijon), i.e. 33 additional agglomerations which regularly exceed the air quality limit values. . Not to mention other communities that would get involved without being obliged to.
The Climate and Resilience Law provides, for the first 11 “mandatory” zones, automatic bans : Crit’air 5 in 2023, Crit’air 4 in 2024 and Crit’Air 3 in 2025. But communities can decide on a faster pace, or go further within the restrictions. Or to target primarily certain types of vehicles. Thus Lyon plans to extend the restrictions to Crit’air 2 and to widen its ZFE perimeter, and Saint-Etienne has chosen to target only utilities.
