generalization of the speed limit to 30 km / h

The deputy mayor of Paris David Belliard announced that the speed limit in the capital would be lowered to 30 km / h, from the end of August 2021.

This is an additional difficulty that will await Parisian motorists, as soon as they return from vacation this year: David Belliard has just announced, this Thursday, July 8 to AFP, that the speed limit will be lowered to 30 km / h in the streets of Paris at the end of August 2021.

Last year, the Paris city hall organized a public consultation on this subject, which divides Parisians: only 31% of those polled said they were in favor of a general speed limit to 30 km / h. Currently, 60% of the streets in Paris are already in zone 30.

Limitation to 30 km / h in Paris: almost all the streets concerned

The extension of this limitation to the whole of the capital will concern the vast majority of Parisian roads, with the exception of a few axes : the ring road will remain at 70 km / h (but for how long?), while the boulevards des Maréchaux, two portions of the quays of the Seine, certain roads in the Bois de Boulogne and Vincennes, the rue Royale, the avenues of Champs-Elysées, Foch, and the Grande Armée, as well as certain axes of the 12th and 14th arrondissements, will keep their limit at 50 km / h.

A campaign promise from Anne Hidalgo (PS) and Europe Ecologie Les Verts (EELV), this new measure aims to “To reduce the place of the car”, « to secure “The streets of the capital, and” reduce noise pollution “, According to David Belliard, deputy environmentalist to the mayor of Paris in charge of” the transformation of public space, transport, mobility, the street code and roads “.
