The compulsory Crit’Air sticker
On 1 November 2017, the Crit’Air scheme came into force in Strasbourg and in all of the 33 districts comprising the Eurometropolis.
All vehicles travelling in this restricted traffic area must imperatively have a Crit’Air sticker, failing which they may be banned from operating between 6 am and 10 pm on the Eurometropolis’ road and motorway network, from the 3rd alert day.
This ban will apply, once again as from the 3rd alert day, to vehicles with Crit’Air 4 or 5 certificates.
During pollution peaks, the population will be kept informed by all media outlets. These alerts chiefly concern vulnerable persons such as children, the elderly or pregnant women. You are strongly advised to avoid any outdoor sporting activities.
This scheme will accompany the emergency measures already deployed on the first alert day (speed limitations, etc.).
Please note: Strasbourg Eurometropolis applies special prices for public transport and to hire a Vel’hop during pollution peaks.
The aim of this scheme is to prevent approximately one car in ten and two trucks in ten from taking to the roads, thereby reducing pollutant emissions by approximately 30%.
