On Thursday, drivers will not be able to speed over 110 km/h on motorways (autoroutes), down from the usual 130 km/h.
Roads with a 110km/h or 80/90 km/h speed limit will be limited to 90 km/h and 70 km/h respectively.
Only vehicles with with a Crit'Air pollution sticker classified as 0, 1 or 2 are allowed to drive inside the A86 ring road, so those with number 3 and above will have to leave their cars at home.
