Tax on SUVs in Paris: this association calls it “dumb”

For the association 40 Million Motorists, the tax on parking SUVs in Paris is simply “stupid”. We tell you everything.

As we know, cars are now in the sights of some, and in particular environmentalists. But there is a category that is even more in the crosshairs of the latter. These are SUVs, accused of all evils. For some, they are responsible for many accidents and are also more polluting. To the extent that associations deflate their tires to denounce their existence, while others want to make them pay more. This is particularly the case of David Belliard, ecologist assistant to the town hall of Paris, in charge in particular of transport.

A “dumb” tax

He had in fact put forward the idea of ​​charging more for parking on raised models in the capital. An idea described as “dumb” by the spokesperson of theassociation 40 Million Motorists. Questioned by Auto-Moto, the latter is particularly upset. He explains in fact that “iThey say “they are longer”. Yes, indeed, since 1960, three centimeters, on average. On the weight, it has increased in particular because of the pollution control equipment and because electric cars are heavier […] It’s like tomorrow you want to charge more for blue cars because you don’t like blue. Me, I’m in favor of charging for bicycles that are parked haphazardly on the sidewalks, that would be a good measure« .

A difficult measure to implement

Moreover, it would be tvery difficult to enforce this measure according to the general manager. He explains that ” I think we are in the political announcement to satisfy a mindless electorate. I think that master Jean-Baptiste Iosca and master Ingrid Attal (the lawyers who work for 40 Million Motorists) will be happy to unbolt this type of measure if it is voted“. Indeed, what are the precise criteria for call a car an “SUV” and therefore tax it more? Hard to say.
