Due to a pollution episode in Paris, car drivers are asked to leave their cars at home on the 21st January 2017.

To encourage people not to use their cars, there is free public transport (Vélib'), the first hour of low emission car hire is free (Autolib'), and free residential parking.

Those driving in Paris should have a LEZ Sticker to avoid fines (see our Paris pollution alert page). If the high pollution lasts a longer time, a tighter emissions standard will be required.

For more information, see our Paris pollution alert page, or the Paris website (in French).
