Car Free Day (September 18)
It's no secret that Paris is among the most polluted cities in the world. For all its beauty and luxury, the air here isn't exactly the cleanest in the world. And a huge part of that is the big number of cars that give off carbon monoxide and more. It's not necessarily the city's fault since Paris is an important powerhouse of a metropolis. But to help counter all that pollution, the city will host a Car-Free Day on September 18, 2022. On this day, you won't see a single automobile on the street. You can stroll or ride your bike throughout the many neighborhoods of Paris
and enjoy such sweet clean air!
