    French Green Zones (again)



    CLICK HERE TO REMOVE THESE ADVERTS
    I managed to order a vignette off the official site, no mean feat for this ageing Luddite.

    Had confirmation from the Frogs, my allotted category is 4, whether that’s good or bad, I’ve no idea.

    They say the confirmation is being sent to the address on the V5, in the meantime I can use the message as proof.

    Here in Albir, I found a techie place who downloaded & printed the bumph.

    What I want to know now is, how do we find out what categories are allowed in certain areas & at what times. Don’t say local radio cos who the fcuk tunes in to local radio??.
    Britons were wild camping long before campsites, it's a basic human right.

    I assume you mean the crit air sticker. Check this site for updates on each area of France as or before you pass through, although I havenít heard of much disruption so far. People in Paris though are starting to be prosecuted for failure to display a proper sticker.

    Thatís what the Frogs call it, itís a posh name for the the thing you stick in the windscreen.

    It isn't worth not having one, doesn't cost much, doesn't need renewing

    If you are thinking to stay oit of zones You never know when you,ll have to enter one like breakdown, doctor, vet, hospital, etc. And if they where actvated there only a narrow corridor down thru France to use

    Some of the zones have main routes passing through them. The email I had when I asked about how you found out if they were active or not suggested phoning the Mayors Offices along the chosen route and asking. I downloaded the App and nothing is active for months in advance.

    I suppose when they decide to use private contractors to start checking stickers that you will suddenly find lots of places that have pollution problems who need extra cash.

    If you have an Android or "i" phone, there is a free app that will give you the required information. The Android version is at Green-Zones - Apps on Google Play. However, you have to know which departments you're in and wish to transit. That said, we're nearing the end of our circumnavigation of France and, with the exception of some cities, haven't found an active zone yet. HTH, Geoff
