Paris Introduces Car-Free Sundays
People walk on the Champs-Elysees, September 27, 2015 as central Paris goes car-free on Sunday. The French capital’s central arrondissements and areas around landmarks such as the Eiffel Tower and Champs-Elysees are free from car noise and exhaust fumes, allowing people to stroll, cycle or skate between 0900 GMT and 1600 GMT.

Banning vehicles from parts of the city—including the Champs Elysées—is part of an ongoing effort to curb pollution.
