At this time, humans moved often, and had few belongings to take with them. However, once the agricultural period began, humans began to move less often.

Mandatory vignette to drive in Paris as of January 16, 2017
As of Monday 16th of January 2017, a vignette will be mandatory to drive in Paris. This new scheme covers all vehicles registered in Europe (cars, coaches, trucks, vans, etc.). The vignette (to be placed on the lower right side of vehicle window) will be mandatory for driving in Paris (entire city) from Monday to Friday, from 8 AM to 8 PM. The different categories of vignettes, based on the EURO class of the vehicles, will benefit from different driving and parking facilitation in case of pollution peak. The city of Paris has in the past (usually during summer time when pollution is at its highest) adapted various systems to reduce the number of vehicles on the road such as allowing only either odd or even number plates to circulate. EURO III vehicles are still allowed in the city until 1 July 2017.
You can obtain your vignette here (until beginning of January 2017, available for vehicles registered in France only). In the first week of January 2017, a new module for foreign registered vehicles should be added to the website of the French Government
