France is preparing to impose a fee on cars entering large and medium cities

The French will be forced to pay a fee of between 2.5 and 5 euros for entering their vehicles into cities with a population of more than 100,000. This measure, which the government is currently taking, will contribute, according to what it says, to reducing carbon pollution emitted by various vehicles, as it will force people to use public transportation or clean energy transportation.

“Pay to drive in the heart of big cities” is an urban tax principle that could come into effect across France, announced Thursday by France’s new environment minister, François Durugy. The same spokesman indicated that the revenues of these new fees will not enter the public treasury, but will be allocated to local authorities in each city.

The French and consumer protection associations have criticized this measure, which they describe as deterrent and punitive, especially since the government excludes companies that manufacture cars from these environmental protection measures.

In France, no city relied on “paying to enter metropolitan cities” despite the legality of the procedure defined by the Grinnell laws issued in 2010, unlike some European cities such as London, Stockholm and Milan.
