‘SO WHAT IF I WANT TO GO TO PARIS?’

Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - News Analysis -

The ban will only be en­forced from 8am-8pm Mon­day to Fri­day – and isn’t in force overnight or at week­ends, al­low­ing own­ers of his­toric ve­hi­cles to en­joy them for more than 50% of the time.

Brightly coloured passes in your ve­hi­cle’s wind­screen – they’re known as air qual­ity cer­tifi­cates and show what emis­sions reg­u­la­tions it com­plies with. The ban will be en­forced at ran­dom check­points across the city.

If you do daw­dle into Paris in your clas­sic ac­ci­den­tally dur­ing the work­ing week, you‘ll be fined €35 (£27.36), which will rise to €68 (£53.15) by 2017. The of­fence will be treated in a sim­i­lar man­ner to a parking ticket, so don’t worry about thrown into La Bastille for driv­ing up the

Champs-Élysées in your Tri­umph TR4.

The city’s clas­sic shows will still take place – largely be­cause they take place at week­ends any­way. The or­gan­is­ers of the

Traver­sée de Paris have con­firmed their next event is not af­fected by the changes and will take place on 31 July.

The Traver­sée de Paris show is un­af­fected by the changes.
