All traffic in Paris will stop for a day

    “Une Journée Sans Voiture” (A Day Without Cars) – this is what will happen on the 27th of September in Paris. From 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. all cars will be prohibited from the  1st, 2nd, 3th, 4th, 5th, 6th, 7th, 10th and 11th neighborhoods, the Left Bank, the Eiffel Tower, Boulogne, Bois de Vincennes, Place de la Republique, Place Stalingrad, and the Champs Élysées.

    Of course, ambulances and other emergency vehicles will have the right to drive on the streets.

    “Paris will be completely transformed for a day. This is an opportunity for Parisians and tourists to enjoy the city without noise, pollution and therefore without stress” declared Mayor Anne Hidalgo on Twitter.

    “Une Journée Sans Voiture” comes right after the European Mobility Week, which stretches from the 16th to the 22nd of September and right before COP 21, which is the United Nations’ Climate Change Conference, which will also take place in Paris.

    The city of Paris invites everyone, both locals and tourists, to the aforementioned areas, to enjoy a noise-free, traffic-free, and pollution-free Paris.
