Paris rolls out color-code stickers for cars to curb pollution

By Lucien Libert PARIS (Reuters) – The French capital on Monday launched a new color-coded sticker scheme to restrict car use in its latest attempt to curb air pollution many Parisians blame for coughing fits, eye irritation and runny noses. Paris Mayor Anne Hidalgo said she hoped to get the ban extended from Tuesday to vehicles registered between 2001 and 2005 – color-coded brown and comprising 14 percent of France’s car fleet – to better fight the smog problem. Authorities have also tried to restrict vehicles entering the capital during air pollution spikes on the basis of license plates.
