I believe that the Crit'Air sticker is a legal requirement in a growing number of towns and cities now within France. It used to be solely Paris and as I never had a desire to bring my caravan through the city centre, I never bothered with the sticker.  Now that it is becoming more widespread, I find myself looking at it.  Has anyone purchased this sticker and if so what was the process of purchasing it like?  Another question I have, what happens if you are caught with a non French registered car without the sticker?  is it a monetary fine or can the car be confiscated?

Hi Aaron, It's a 'clean air' windscreen sticker (vignette) which is now a legal requirement in some of its cities. The French have introduced it as a quick visual means to identify a vehicle’s emissions levels and in some cases, restrict access to some towns and cities in order to improve air quality. I believe that not all vehicles are eligible for the vignettes. The official website is www.certificat-air.gouv.fr/ while the vignette is only €4 approx, The fines are fairly hefty...up to €140. I'm afraid other than that I don't know anything about the purchasing process outside of France or if the fines are only monetary or indeed if the vehicle can be seized.

vignets seemingly are widespread in most european countrys, allowing for travel on motorways, kinda like a toll sticker as far as i know. a lot of vanlife youtubers (John & Mandy etc) who are currently touring europe mention them from time to time on their channel and may have done an episode to explain them and their advantages etc....
if it cant be fixed with a hammer, its an electrical fault......
