It has applied to French cars since January the 16th. (I have posted links with information in English.)

It applies to all cars ( and bikes) French and non French. Took a couple of months for them to set up the system for foreign cars.
It's been in the French press extensively since at least middle of last year.
The system will roll out across most large French cities over the next 18 months.

This is what was written in the letters column of the Western Morning News date unknown.
I would advise everybody driving in or passing through France to obtain a Crit'air sticker on the French government's official Crit'air website.
It's better to pay £4-10 to obtain one than risk an on the spot fine from over zealous gendarme of £117.
I've seen a man hauled off to jail his car confiscated in Roscoff for arguing about an on the spot fine.
His wife and two children were not pleased as all they got were Gallic shrugs.
Ergo do not argue with a gendarme. (Don't know what Ergo is)

It was a letter from a guy from Tiverton,Devon.

So it would seem to me that where we are heading for we shouldn't been one,unless we wanted to see Paris.

He's talking *ollock*! The rule doesn't even apply to Roscoff so why would the flics do that?? More likely he was hauled off for something totally unrelated to Crit'air stickers.
The older I get, the faster I was.

Precisely. (Given the several hundred cars not showing Crit'Air stickers.)

Ergo means " therefore" ( in Latin). The report is clearly bollocks. You won't be hauled off for not having one; he was obviously just an typically aggressive Brit , being stopped for something and got arsey.
Or it's just a load of invented cobblers.

At the moment;
It's just Paris Lyon and Grenoble.
Lille And Strasbourg have said they will adopt it;
The following cities have also passed local laws about reduced pollution zones, and will probably introduce the vignettes as part of the antipollution measures.
Avignon, Béthune, Bordeaux, Clermont-Ferrand, Douai-Lens, Grenoble, Marseille-Aix-en-Provence, Metz, Montpellier, Nancy, Nantes, Nice, Orléans, Pointe-à-Pitre-Les-Abymes, Rennes, Rouen, Saint-Etienne, Toulon, Toulouse, Tours, Valenciennes.

It's up to local governments and prefectures to decide.
Germany is ( or will soon be ) introducing something similar. I expect there will soon be a europe- wide scheme; ( e.g. Your French one will be accepted in other EU cities that have similar schemes)
