Motorists in Paris today face speed restrictions in a bid to reduce polluting exhaust emissions. In addition heavy lorries are banned from the city centre, burning of garden waste is banned and some individual wood fires are also forbidden.
Paris intends to introduce a system of vignettes of different colours to indicate the level of pollution likely with restrictions to the most polluting.
There are proposals to introduce alternate day access to several major cities, limiting access depending of whether your immatriculation ends with an odd or even number - though Paris has decided against that for today.
