How Paris is stepping up its drive against the car - BBC News

Some interesting points:

  • A pollution spike last year led to Paris briefly gaining the dubious distinction of having the world's dirtiest air
  • Pollution is exacerbated by the fact that France has more diesel cars than any of its European neighbours
  • Hidalgo recently gave the green light for Formula E - the electric equivalent of Formula One - to be staged in Paris
  • [Segolene Royal] has also faced criticism for backing down on a proposal to ban wood fires and wood-fired heating
  • Cyclists in Paris no longer have to stop at every red traffic light

We live in interesting times .... :eek:

(But at least DERV is 1st for the chop. :thumbs:)
