Motorists in Paris face an unusual day of restrictions（限行） as the government tries to reduce high levels of pollution（减少污染） in the city. Today only cars with odd-numbered （单数）registration plates are allowed to drive. Tomorrow, if the restrictions remain in place, it’ll be even-numbered cars（双数车牌号的车） that can be driven.
Seven hundred police will be monitoring traffic（监控交通） from early in the morning. If you’re caught in an even-numbered car, you’re liable to a small fine（被罚款）, and you’ll be told to turn back home. There are exceptions for electric and hybrid vehicles（电力车和混合动力车）, and for cars carrying three or more passengers.
The measure’s been tried once before, in 1997, when it’s claimed it did have a noticeable impact on（对。。。有显著的影响） improving air quality. However for many people in Paris and the suburbs it’s going to mean a day of inconvenience, and delivery companies are already complaining of lost income.
Politically, the stakes are high（风险高）, because it comes just a week before Parisians （巴黎人）start electing their new mayor.
