The noise of vehicle engines enveloping the streets of the French capital might in the future become a memory for Paris pedestrians. Christophe Najdovski, one of Paris's transportation officials, told the radio station France Info, "Transport is one of the main greenhouse gas producers.so we are planning an exit from combustion engine vehicles, or fossil-energy vehicles, by 2030".

Many Parisians don't own a auto, yet Hidalgo has angered many of them with her efforts to make Paris a greener city, notably by adding cycling paths along the Seine River, which has slowed vehicle traffic.

Furthermore, the city has already begun to dissuade older cars from entering the city using the most powerful motivator there is: Money.

Wary of those critics, City Hall issued a statement Thursday insisting the 2030 deadline isn't an outright ban but "a feasible and realistic" goal.

Paris authorities plan to banish all petrol- and diesel-fueled cars from the world's most visited city by 2030, Paris City Hall said on Thursday.

Industry watchers, meanwhile, said the absence of Samsung's top leaders cast a cloud over the company's long-term strategy. Sales also probably surged 29.65 percent to 62 trillion won in the July-September period compared to a year earlier.

After an atmospheric phenomenon known as inversion occurred last March, "the pollution levels in Paris briefly topped those of Beijing", NPR's Eleanor Beardsley reported.

"Sensitizing residents to the need to modify their behavior towards the auto was part of the objectives of this day", the mayor's office said in a statement, adding that it was also meant to be a symbol "that cities can and must invent concrete solutions to fight air pollution caused by traffic".

In September 2016, the authorities chose to close a 2.2-mile downtown road and transform it into a promenade. A year later, the body measuring air pollution said the move had no significant impact on residents' exposure to carbon emissions across the whole city.

In recent months, French Ecology Minister Nicolas Hulot prohibits sale of all petrol and diesel-fueled vehicles across country by 2040, explaining that y plan to reach target of zero carbon emissions in 2050. "That's my goal", said Hidalgo in an interview with Le Parisian on the city's anti-pollution measures.
