Paris Tells Half of Drivers to Leave Cars at Home
Pollution is fogging the French capital, and Parisian authorities are fighting back. Today, the odds have it; police are halting cars with even license plates from entering the City of Lights. The temporary scheme will see vehicles with odd and even license plates allowed into the city on alternating days. A visible smog hangs over Paris owing to a series of warm days followed by cold nights. Officials may have angered drivers with the ban, but there was free public transport over the weekend. Air quality levels will determine whether only even-plated cars get the green light tomorrow.
