Pollution-choked Paris introduces emergency traffic measures

Expatica.com reports on measures being planned by the Paris authorities to try and combat the smog which is currently affecting the city:

Paris authorities have requested emergency traffic-limiting measures to be put in place on Friday, as the City of Light and much of northern France suffers from a choking smog.

City mayor Anne Hidalgo asked national authorities to stop one in every two cars entering the capital and make all public transport free for a day in a bid to drive down pollution.

These emergency measures were last implemented almost exactly a year ago — on March 17 — during a particularly bad spike in the pollution levels.

On Wednesday, the concentration of potentially dangerous particulates in the air went over the recommended maximum, pressing authorities into action.
