Anne Hidalgo's anti-SUV vote cost 400,000 euros, or more than 5 euros per mobilized voter

The vote organized on Sunday in Paris on the tripling of parking rates for the largest cars cost around 400,000 euros, confirmed Tuesday the first deputy Emmanuel Grégoire, or a ratio of more than 5 euros per mobilized voter. “We are delighted to have had 78,000 voters, it is extremely important,” he nevertheless insisted, while he was questioned on the sidelines of the Paris Council on the low participation (5.68% of 1, 3 million Parisian voters).

The consultation organized by the municipality on “the creation of a specific rate for the parking of heavy, bulky, polluting individual cars” saw the “for” winning at 54.55%. This consultation, the second of its kind after that which validated the eviction of self-service scooters in April 2023, mobilized around 11,000 town hall agents, Yves Charpenel, president of the control commission, told AFP on Monday. .

Proxies were not possible because they were “extremely expensive,” he said. Although he did not report any incident, the president of the control commission recognized a “source of discontent” resulting from the “disruption of voting locations” compared to the previous vote. “Spontaneously”, some voters went wrongly to their district town hall when they were supposed to vote elsewhere, and had to turn back, he explains.

Opponent Agnès Evren, president of the capital's LR federation, denounced Monday "a vote worthy of the worst ideological mischief." For the right-wing elected official, “5% majority out of 5.68% participation (a grotesque figure), that makes 4,000 voters. Is this enough to bring the price of 6 hours of parking to more than 200 euros for all Parisian motorists?

Anne Hidalgo announced after the vote that a deliberation would be presented in May so that the measure would come into force on September 1. So that parking meters can know the weight of the vehicle at the time of compulsory registration of the license plate, the town hall must obtain the data file from the Vehicle Registration Service (SIV), the town hall specified.
