The little green sticker, mandatory for 36 years, could well disappear from the windshield. Insurance companies believe it is no longer useful because law enforcement now has direct access to computerized data.

It is on all our windshields, but more for a very long time. The green sticker could soon disappear from cars, and drivers see it with a good eye. “It could be a good thing, because we often forget to renew it“The vignette, a certificate of insurance, became mandatory in France in 1986, with a supporting communication campaign. The French at first were not always captivated by the idea.

Even today, the sticker must be glued and exposed, otherwise a fine of 35 euros can be imposed. According to insurance, it is too expensive to send to every driver, and too easily counterfeit. Leur fédération therefore proposes that law enforcement have direct access to the insured vehicle file via the license plate. “We have this line that is much more effective in the fight against fraud. “says Florence Lustman, president of France Assureurs. France is one of the last European countries to keep the insurance sticker.
