Such is the problem of air pollution generated by vehicles that the city of Paris is introducing air quality certificates, mandatory from January 16. On Wednesday, December 28, the Ministry of the Environment registered 950,000 applications, 700,000 from private individuals and from 250,000 companies.

These so-called “Crit’Air” certificates will be displayed as vignettes, signifying by colour the level of pollution generated by each vehicle, according to six categories. The cities of Grenoble and Lyon have already introduced the system, which enable the authorities to limit the use of certain vehicles when CO2 emissions are deemed to be too high.

Although pollution from vehicles is recognised as a problem on the Côte d’Azur, there are as yet no plans to introduce the vignettes locally.
