Environmental Zone Marseille
On the 1st January, 2019, a so-called emergency low-emissions zone (ZPA) was introduced also in Marseille. Both French and foreign drivers may enter the activated low-emissions zone only with a valid Crit'Air sticker. It is not so far known which classes will be banned from entering. The information will be updated in time.
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.

This is an emergency low-emissions zone that is activated if the emissions limits are exceeded for more than 3 consecutive days.
If you drive without the environmental badge in the activated low-emissions zone, you will pay a fine of € 68 (i.e. approximately £ 62), which can climb to € 375 (i.e. approximately £ 320) in case of late payment.
Driving in Marseille
Are you going to Marseille by car?
Foreign cars must be marked with the environmental badge “Crit'air” from 1.1. 2019. This so-called emergency low-emissions zone takes effect when a higher smog level lasts for more than 3 days. Although the specific conditions and precise territorial scope are not yet known, it can be assumed that vehicles with a Crit'Air sticker of emissions classes 4 and 5 will be excluded.
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.
