Paris planning extension of diesel ban

Parisian authorities are considering extending the ban on diesel cars into the capital, writes Brian Byrne.

Currently, all diesel cars built between 1997 and 2000 are banned. The authorities are now looking at doing the same for all diesel cars registered between 2001-2005.

The total range represents about 20pc of France's car parc.

The existing ban uses mandatory grey stickers on the windscreen to denote the banned cars. The new one will use brown stickers.

The French capital is only part of the country suffering from smog and related health problems, primarily due to the high penetration of diesel engines in the country. But it is particularly problematic in Paris.
