SMOG STICKER Driving to France? You need to order this emissions sticker NOW or face a £117 fine

 

French police are expected to be lenient with fines in the early days, particularly with foreign drivers

 

BRITISH motorists driving to France this Easter are being warned to order a vehicle emissions sticker NOW to avoid the risk of a hefty fine.

 

A new scheme launched in France earlier this year means that all cars in Paris, Lyon and Grenoble must carry anti-pollution stickers, including foreign vehicles.

 

 

 

Hopefully the UK are going to reciprocate this in the UK for French vehicles ?

Looks like you really need to get your skates on if you are going to France over Easter!!

 

 

But according to the RAC, the stickers can take up to six weeks to reach the UK, so Brits are being urged to order them as soon as possible to ensure they have them on their cars before they make the trip across the channel.

And I can almost guarantee you that scarcely a single French driver will bother to comply with it and there will be almost no enforcement by the police.

 

French drivers who are probably the worst in Europe routinely ignore all sorts of regulations – including not driving on pollution days, parking on pedestrian crossings, parking on the pavement, going the wrong way down one-way streets if they are motorcyclists, riding along the pavements if the road is obstructed or with a one-way sign is against them, and general poor driving practice including using mobile phones, forgetting to cancel indicators or not indicating at all… And the list goes on.

 

French drivers kill more people on the roads than any other European country – and that's even though they have about the same number of cars as the UK and the country is 2 1/2 times as big and so they have 2 1/2 times as much space to drive on and avoid each other and yet they still don't manage to. This high rate of road fatalities is despite a substantial reduction as a result of a road campaign a few years ago.

 

French drivers have an enormously high uninsured driver rate, and also they have a special small vehicle which is available for purchase or hire which doesn't need a licence. I have seen this vehicle advertised by rental companies as being something that you can use while you're waiting for your driving disqualification to expire.

I've seen the 'sans permis' cars, BF. It's crazy, isn't it? You can lose your licence for drink driving and still have one of these little cars. I understand they can't do over about 40kph, but that's still probably fast enough to kill someone.

 

I agree about them not following rules.

Once seen as an anachronism that, given time, would inevitably be legislated out of existence they remain a vital means of transport for an ageing rural population. For the most part they are scruffy and battered. Their bodywork is faded and peeling, often touched-up with a spot of household gloss paint. Wire and gaffer tape hold loose panels together and one I saw had its bumper held in place with washing line fashioned into an elaborate blanket stitch.

 

 

Seems they don't have to pass any MOT either !!

Here you go.

 

You're technically breaking the law, but they can't even fine you. I bought ethylotests the first year they were out, but haven't bothered since. I talked to a friend who's a gendarme when this first came out and he said that the kits weren't all that reliable and if they got very hot or very cold, they didn't work properly. A lot of people thought it was a gift by the then president to the makers of the kits.
