There is a move being made to ban petrol based cars in Paris. There are a number of difficulties with this as a potential plan, chief among them whether or not people could adapt to the change. Financially, switching to bikes or public transportation would be a big discount for most people, but a large population lives in the suburbs, so that option may not be helpful. Switching to electronic cars would cut down on pollution, but the initial cost would be very high to make this jump, though it would cut down expenses in the long run.
