In Paris, France, you can now use public transport for free, due to the massive spike in air pollution — reportedly with the most impact in the last decade.

Pollution is terrible and we must take measures to combat it on a global scale. Parisians, however, intend to bring out the best in their situation.

As of Wednesday, authorities in France have asked that only drivers with registration plates composed of odd-numbers drive in the capital region. Drivers of even-numbered cars were given the same opportunity on Tuesday, but should they not comply, they could end up being fined up to €35 ($50 AUD) if they’re caught driving. More than 1700 drivers were already fined for violations on Tuesday.

Foreign and emergency vehicles will be excepted from the rule.
