Gone are the days when governments used to always have an important matter to take care of. The French government, in particular, appears to have nothing important to do, whatsoever, which is why they are taking a keen interest in making people’s lives more miserable than they actually are, with their pointless shenanigans and useless measures of authority and control.
France has decided to ride the climate change bandwagon a bit too much, perhaps at the cost of the comfort of its own people. According to a new regulation, the vehicles in France will need to have a clean air sticker on them, all for the purpose of identifying what emissions they produce. The justification that the representatives have given for such a strange step lies in how they are willing to reduce harmful emissions. According to them, if, on a certain day, a location is at a higher risk of air pollution, vehicles will be denied entrance into the location based on the sticker that they might be carrying. The regulation was brought into effect in January 2018 and is currently applicable in Paris, Grenoble, Strasbourg, Lille, Lyon and Toulouse.
Failure to comply would result in the imposition of a heavy fine. What’s more startling is the fact that the regulations are even applicable on individuals who are nationals of other EU nations and are merely riding through France on a visit. When you take it all into perspective, the shenanigan appears to be nothing more than a stunt by the French government to prove that nobody cares about the environment more than them. They are actually right in their claim, if you think about it, for the other leading world governments take more pride in serving and protecting their people!
