New Year and some new laws in France
The price of diesel is going up by 1 centime and the price of petrol being reduced by 1 centime. This should remove some of the price advantage that diesel, considred more of a pollutant, has had over petrol.
If you drive in Paris you will have to have a vignette
to indicate how polluting your car is. When the polution levels are very high, you may have to leave your car at home.
I have mentioned this before, but there is now a ban on vehicles having tinted front windows - window and side windows.
Talking of vehicles, autoroute tolls are set to rise by an average of .8%.
There is now a ban on fruit and vegetables being sold in plastic bags. Shopkeepers must use biodegradable paper for example.
Finally - cigarette cartons must be in plain packaging and any that flout the law will be banned.
