Vehicles run on the Champs-Elysees Avenue in Paris, France, March 16, 2014. The French government on Saturday decided to limit vehicle use in Paris and suburbs next Monday after air pollution reached high levels in the capital city. In a statement posted on Matignon website, Prime Minister Jean-Marc Ayrault decided to set a system of "alternating traffic" in Paris and suburbs from 5:30 a.m. (0430 GMT) on March 17 as pollution was expected to continue unabated through the weekend.
