Paris prohibits the circulation of vehicles more than 20 years

Good news: Paris will allow classics with more than 30 years to circulate

At the beginning of the month we reported dire news: From July 1 Paris would prohibit circulation from Monday to Friday of motor vehicles with more than 20 years old. How is it possible that a measure of this importance has flourished in the city that gave birth to the automobile?, We fans asked ourselves then.

What would be of Paris without the stamp of the old machinery circulating through its streets? And the International Federation of Vintage Vehicles (FIVA) Where was it? Regarding the latter, and fortunately, he took care of his work. Together with UNESCO explained the cultural value of our classics to the city councilors of the City of Love, with the aim of making them understand that they should lift the ban on, at least, vehicles older than 30 years.

Well, FIVA has done it and we are in luck, because the regulations applied in Paris will probably set the standard when it comes to legislating in other cities; or so Gautam Sen, vice president of foreign relations of the federation, thinks so.

Also is the most reasonable: As we defended, for example, after the controversial statements of Sixt and Continental Three years ago, motor vehicles with more than 30 years old hardly circulated.

They are not the culprits, therefore, from urban pollution; possibly neither are those with more than 20 years behind them. For this reason the work of FIVA has not yet finished, the talks with the leaders of the French capital continue from strength to strength to achieve exemption from the ban on the so-called 'youngtimers'.

At 'The Escudería' We want to wish you luck, Cheer up, comrades, and thank you very much for defending our Historical Heritage!
