The papers have recently mentioned France's introduction of an Air Quality Certificate which must be shown on all cars when currently entering three cities: Paris; Lyon, & Grenoble.

These stickers are a one off purchase & cost less than 5 Euros but failure to have this sticker on your screen; when driving in the designated areas; can result in a fine of over £100.

Being cynical I reckon that once one French (or British for that matter!) local government area starts any motorist restricting practice others will follow.

As we drive to/through France 2 or 3 times a year I decided to get a sticker.

The web site is: certificat-air.gouv.fr

They want plenty of info including Euro rating (1.2: Euro5  1.6: Euro4) plus a copy of your car's reg doc which you should have handy whilst completing the form. Also the download of your reg doc must be under 400kb & in a preferred format (jpg or png are OK). My application kept failing until I spotted the size limit on the file which necessitated a significant reduction of resolution of my scan down from the usual 300 dpi to 150 dpi.

I've applied early as there are stories of 6 week waits for delivery.

I've paid my money & I now await my sticker. Another France related item on my screen as I also have a Liberte Tag for French toll booths.

Very interesting to know. I don't think I could be brave enough to drive near Paris. But I did drive to the meet in Blois  It seems like a dream but I did it.  lol!

Useful to know.  We're off to Belgium in August, but hopefully we won't need this then.  The breath test and the triangle and the hi-vis vests.

Watch the headlight beam things. I think, but can't be sure they have damaged my headlight lenses. Off to the garage tomorrow to find out. Will keep you informed.

Off to Cassis next Monday.

Might actually get to put my Crit Air sticker to use as we plan to have a day out in Marseilles; who are now involved in the scheme; whilst there.

Allegedly Marseilles is a bit hectic for driving. I'm told that Paris & Barcelona; which I have driven; are less stressful.

That said I've also driven Naples. What can be worse than that?

So: we'll set the sat nav to Google Earth's coordinates for "Parking near Old Port of Marseille" & give it a go!
