Cars drive under a road sign reading: ‘17/03 from 5h30 traffic for even numbers forbidden,’ on the Parisian ring road as Paris resorted to drastic measures to curb soaring pollution levels by forcing all cars with number plates ending in even numbers off the road for the first time in two decades. Around 700 police officers were deployed at 60 checkpoints around the French capital to ensure that only cars with number plates ending in odd numbers were on the streets.

Police officers stop cars with number plates ending in even numbers, as part of a drive to limit vehicular pollution on Paris streets. Public transport has been free since the weekend to persuade Parisians to leave their cars at home. The state railway company, SNCF, warned on its website of packed suburban trains at peak hours as a result of the temporary policy. Photograph: Francois Guillot/AFP/Getty Images
