Paris To Drop All ICE Cars By 2030

Paris aims to ban petrol cars by 2030

In the future, the noise of vehicle engines revving in the streets of Paris might be just a memory. "Transport is one of the main greenhouse gas producers.so we are planning an exit from combustion engine vehicles, or fossil-energy vehicles".

France, along with the United Kingdom, made headlines earlier this summer by announcing plans to phase out sales of gasoline- and diesel-engined cars by 2040, but it appears the city of Paris has an even earlier target in mind.

Many Parisians don't own a auto but Hidalgo still has angered many of them with her efforts to make Paris a greener city, notably by adding cycling paths that have slowed vehicle traffic along the Seine River.

Paris City Hall, already under attack over the establishment of no-car zones, car-free days and fines for drivers who enter the city in cars that are more than 20 years old, said it was not using the word "ban" but rather introducing a feasible deadline by which combustion-engine cars would be phased out.

The city's planned steps to phase out gasoline- and diesel-engined cars reflect a growing trend among large cities to take action on environmental issues apart from their countries' governments.

Rees-Mogg a Joke or a new Leader?
Despite all the critics around him, Rees-Mogg is making big steps in the race using all the scandals around him as extra scores. Conservative thinking in its very hard right determination is making his person attractive for the UK conservative fans.

After an atmospheric phenomenon known as inversion occurred last March, "the pollution levels in Paris briefly topped those of Beijing", NPR's Eleanor Beardsley reported. Instead, citizens will get around via public transport, bicycles, and electric cars - and Paris will be on its way to carbon neutrality by 2050.

The move marks an acceleration in plans to wean the country off gas-guzzlers and switch to electric vehicles in a city often obliged to impose temporary bans due to surges in particle pollution in the air.

In September 2016, the authorities made a decision to close a 2.2-mile downtown road and transform it into a promenade.

With her ambition of taking gasoline-powered cars off the Paris roads by 2030, Hidalgo wants to go faster than the French government.

Cities across the globe have announced similar plans in recent months to reduce or eliminate gas- and diesel-fueled cars. "That's my goal", said Hidalgo in an interview with Le Parisian on the city's anti-pollution measures.
