Smokers, be aware Paris is going to war with cigarette butt droppers.
It has been decided that the fines will be doubled as City Hall is collecting around 350 tonnes of them each year.
Starting in October 2015, fines have increased to 68€ (against a current 35€ fine). A programme of installing 30,000 new bins equipped with a facility for cigarette butts disposal has been completed.
From September 2016, “cigaret squads” (1800 brigadiers) walk doing the streets of Paris to control and fine people.
