On September 25, Sunday, Paris will be celebrating the Car Free Day, where the streets will be closed to motorized vehicles from 11am to 6pm, inviting pedestrians and cyclists to enjoy a few moments free of traffic, noise and pollution

"People from the Paris region and visitors will be able to enjoy a peaceful and breathable city with 648.15 kilometers of car-free roads, equivalent to 45% of the area of the city," the Conventions and Visitors said in a report by Forbes.

"This ban on traffic applies to all motor vehicles (LPG vehicles, electric cars, two and three-wheeler motorized vehicles) and will be enforced by the police and 100 municipal staff. This day will be an opportunity to discover or rediscover our capital in a different way with many fun and educational activities on the program."

It will be the second Journée sans voitures, covering a larger area compared with last year's event. Practically every neighborhood will be included, where only bicycles, delivery tricycles, non-motorized scooters, rollerblades and skateboards will be allowed on the streets of the French capital (with a few exceptions like ambulances).
