New snub for EPZs. The metropolis of Aix-Marseille has just decided to postpone the ban on Crit’Air 3 cars.

From back to school 2024, the metropolis of Aix-Marseille should prohibit traffic Crit’Air 3 cars in its EPZ.
But it seems that things do not go as planned. Authorities will postpone this measure see you later.

A difficult schedule to keep

The metropolitan calendar originally provided for a ban of circulation in the ZFE from next September 1stdiesel cars before 2011 and gasoline cars before 2007.
Yes but there you go, ban more than 300,000 vehicles is no longer necessarily in the plans local authorities.
The metropolis of Aix-Marseille will simply reporter this ban on a date laterwithout further details.
A decision explained by Martine VassalPresident of the metropolis, to our colleagues from The Tribune : “The Crit’Air 3 application, which must be implemented no later than January 1, 2025, will not be implemented. It takes time, we need to be more tolerant”
On the contrary, the metropolis of Aix-Marseille even wishes become a territory of vigilance, like 37 other towns.
As a reminder, these towns no longer have no obligation concerning their EPZ, if not to forbid cars unclassified on January 1st 2025.
This is possible thanks to a pollution threshold not exceeded. Something that doesn’t have successful to do Marseille, if we are to believe the official figures.

Aid of 5,000 euros

At the same time, the Aix-Marseille metropolis has decided to offer aid of 5,000 euros in 2024 for its residents in the ZFE. The goal is to help them to invest in mobility electric.
To benefit from this assistance, you must respect certain criteria. The authorities will put in place resource conditions, in order to target the most modest.
This help will also concern the details than professionals. For these latterhelp will also be offered to businesses the most modest.
The city also hopes that this decision to create a fund and motive the different communities in order to offer even more help grande.
As a reminder, currently in the Aix-Marseille metropolis, vehicles with a sticker Crit’Air 4 and 5 are prohibited from circulation.
