THE QUESTION -

Asked Tuesday about the impact of the low emission zone set up since the beginning of the month in Paris and its surroundings, the Minister of Ecological Transition hammered out that this choice is made "

to save lives

".

Recalling that today in France, 40,000 deaths are due to air pollution partly caused by road traffic, Barbara Pompili declared on France Inter: “

We have projections which show that in the Paris region, we could save 6,600 lives per year.

This is what we are doing

”.

Where does this estimate come from?

” (ZFE-m) in France, since Crit'Air 5 and non-classified vehicles already have very limited access.
