Paris Could Ban Diesel Cars By 2020

Mayor of Paris Anne Hidalgo has put the wheels in motion on a plan to ban diesel cars from driving in paris by the year 2020. The idea would be to move towards more pedestrianised areas in some of the districts, to go hand-in-hand with a bigger reliance on buses and taxis around the centre.  All this comes on the back of recent comments by the French President to reduce the dependence on diesel vehicles across the whole of France, offering the opinion that the country’s diesel leaning was a ‘mistake’. It’s definitely an uphill task though, with more than 80% of the cars on French roads being diesel, along with 65% of the new cars that have already been sold this year.
