cigarettes always more expensive
Ten euros for the pack of Marlboro ! This is it, the brand of cigarettes most often consumed in france has reached the symbolic threshold. This represents a dramatic increase of 70 cents per pack sold. Of course, the rise in the price of tobacco also applies to other tobacco companies. And if all the packets do not appear again for ten euros, they are all bringing in a very significant way. The image of Philip Morris, which see their prices climb from 9.10 to 9,80 euros regardless of the nicotine content of the package of cibiches. This umpteenth increase in the tobacco (in all its forms) is part of the government's desire to further lower the consumption. With success.
The malus self yet changed
Yet the change to the malus automobile. This time, it is not a question of lowering the threshold for triggering the tax, but to change the system of calculation of the pollution of vehicles. From 1 march, the new cars must conform to a new protocol for measuring fuel consumption and emissions, called WLTP (Worldwide harmonized Light-Vehicle Test Procedure). A system that is more severe, which should give values closer to real driving conditions on the road.
The government has taken into account in the development of the grid penalty, by increasing all the thresholds of 28 grams of carbon dioxide per kilometre. Now, the tax is triggered from 138 grams per kilometre, compared with 110 since 1 January. It is only 50 euros, but can reach... 20 000 euros for vehicles that emit at least 213 grams per kilometer. Addition to the SUV !
new for motorcycle license
The motorcycle license is changing, with the entry into force of the ETM, the new "theory test bike". Finished the oral examination, the day of passage of the test of the so-called "plateau", the candidates must now go to a test centre authorised to respond to 40 questions on the road, the driver, the elements of protection and security... The exam costs 30 euros and it is necessary to obtain at least 35 correct answers to pass.
With this reform, the government hopes to improve the safety of motorcyclists, which accounted for 19% of deaths on the road so they weigh only 1.6% of the traffic.
on the practical Side, changes will also enter into force this month, but on the 18th of march. They relate in particular to the test in circulation, of which the time is extended by approximately ten minutes.
