The Low-emissions Zone of Strasbourg
On the 1st November 2017, a so-called emergency low-emissions zone (ZPA) was also introduced in Strasbourg. Both French and foreign drivers may enter the activated low-emissions zone only with a valid Crit'Air sticker of emissions classes E, 1, 2 and 3. Vehicles with a lower emissions class or without the sticker will be banned from entering the zone.
As in Germany, Austria and other European countries, France is seeking to improve the environment and the quality of life of its residents in larger cities.

Driving in Strasbourg
Are you going to Strasbourg by car?
Since 1. 9. 2018 foreign cars have been obliged to be marked with the “crit'air” environmental badge.

Only vehicles with the crit'air plaque of classes E, 1, 2, and 3 are allowed to enter the activated low-emissions zone. There are 6 types of badge in France that express how much the vehicle is involved in air pollution. If you fail to comply with these rules, you risk a fine of € 68 to € 375.
The Strasbourg low-emissions zone includes all 33 municipalities in the region. Restrictions do not affect the main road runs A4, A35, N83, N353 and D1083.
