Association pour le Respect du Site du Mont-Blanc

Association of Mont Blanc Site Compliance

The Association for the Mont Blanc Site Respect aims for 20 years to fight against the pollution generated by heavy goods traffic in transit in the Chamonix valley.

She has, since its inception, received the support of a majority of the inhabitants of the valley, many elected officials and the wider European French citizens or sensitive to the crucial problem of freight transportation.

The objective of the association is to achieve a radical change of policy for transport, both at national and European level, with the transfer of goods to rail and water routes. This transfer must be accompanied by a comprehensive reflection on the usefulness of certain transport and their impact on the economy, the state budget, environment and health.

What do we want?

  • Strict enforcement of existing regulations and widespread checks on lorries not only Mont Blanc, but also on all road networks.
  • Inducing carriers to use existing rail capacity for the crossing of the Alps.

  • Develop combined transport over long distances. Wanting can not simply cross the Alpine barrier from the rail while multiplying the number of trucks on all other roads.

  • HGV ban on night driving in all mountain valleys. Pollution of a truck is six times higher at night because the temperature inversions trap the pollutants in the bottom of valleys.

  • Placing a heavy vehicle fee applicable on the entire road network to offset the costs of road transport (environmental damage, health expenditures, road wear, accident costs ...).
