See: the streets of the car-free capital of lights, the “Paris breathes” event.

-

Today, Sunday, the French capital, Paris, witnessed the implementation of an initiative that aims to contribute to the preservation of the environment by banning cars for one day from 11 am to 6 pm.

The municipality of Paris, which has carried out the “Paris breathes” initiative since 2015, said it contributes to the benefits of a “more peaceful, living and breathing city”.

With the exception of the capital’s ring road, the streets of Paris in this period were dedicated to bicycles, rollerblades, pedestrians and public transport users.

The ban covers two-wheeled and electric vehicles, and violators are fined €135.

France’s air quality observatory said a one-day ban last year had reduced concentrations of carbon dioxide in the air by 20% below normal.

The city tries to entice residents by offering cheap parking spaces during the day, as well as offering free bikes to use for 45 minutes.

The “Paris breathes” initiative also foresees the closure of certain streets for each week or Sunday of the month and the introduction of parking fees for wheels equipped with thermal engines from 1 September.
