Car Ban in Madrid
There is too much pollution in Madrid. That is why there is a ban on some cars now. These cars cannot go in Madrid on some days. The plan is to finish the ban when the level of pollution is down.
Madrid is too warm now. This is unusual for this part of the year. That is why the level of pollution is high. It is above European Union pollution limits.
The speed limits on Madrid´s roads are also down to reduce pollution. Madrid has almost 4 million cars, one for every two people, plus almost 1 million trucks.
London also controls pollution in the city. The city center in Paris is for pedestrians only.
