Paris Makes Public Transportation Free To Fight Pollution, Is Kejriwal Learning ?

It’s such a situation in Paris, that along with love there is also pollution in the air! The city is suffering its worst winter pollution for at least 10 years now.

To battle it, the city has taken a big step by declaring public transport free !

Facing its worse winter pollution in a decade, Paris is sticking to controversial traffic restrictions. Paris city hall has barred half of all cars from traveling and made public transportation free for a third consecutive day. A similar scheme will be implemented in the city of Lyon tomorrow as the pollution hit various regions across France including the Rhone valley.

Like Delhi, Paris too has the odd-even number vehicular policy, where only drivers with odd-numbered registration plates can drive in the capital region on Wednesday. Drivers of even-numbered cars were given the opportunity to take on the roads on Tuesday. If the rule is not followed by the drivers, they would be fined up to €35. Around 1,700 motorists were caught doing so on Tuesday and were fined for the same.

The pollution in Paris is caused mainly due to cars and from domestic wood fires. Airparif, the air quality monitoring network in Paris has published readings of PM10 at more than 80 microgrammes per cubic metre of air particles, triggering the pollution alert.

Delhi has a lesson to learn from this situation as the pollution problem is very much similar to Paris. However, making public transport free would be quiet a drastic step. Is Arvind Kejriwal listening ?
