Paris to charge SUV drivers higher parking fees to tackle β€˜auto-besity’

Paris city hall is to impose higher parking fees on owners of SUVs in its battle to reduce pollution in the capital. Details of the charges have not been announced but the size, weight of the vehicle and its motor will be taken into consideration. Electric vehicles and those with large families requiring a bigger car are expected to escape the increased fees that will come into effect on 1 January 2024. Paris councillors approved the measure in an unanimous vote last month. FrΓ©dΓ©ric Badina-Serpette, a councillor from the EELV ecology party that proposed the increased charges, said: β€œWe would like the city of Paris to change the pricing of paid parking to make it progressive according to the weight and size of vehicles.” https://www.theguardian.com/world/2023/jul/11/paris-charge-suv-drivers-higher-parking-fees-tackle-auto-besity

        This is a great idea for promoting more sustainable transportation and urban planning. It's an important step in addressing the environmental and traffic issues caused by "auto-besity". Hopefully this policy will encourage more people to consider investing in alternative transportation methods and help reduce air pollution in our cities.

              As a result, air quality could be significantly improved and the health issues caused by air pollution could be alleviated.

                It's a good tact to discourage and face out the use of guzzlers which are unimportant at these times as they pollute more unnecessarily

                      This is a great move towards cutting down pollution in the cities. EVs should be adopted.

                            @tabitha_kimani EV adoption has the potential to provide concomitant reductions in air pollutants and GHGs.
