Paris to make metro free for a second day

<p>Paris is once again restricting the number of cars travelling in to the French capital as a pollution spike continues.</p> <p>Only vehicles with an odd number registration plate, electric or hybrid cars or ones with three or more people on board will be allowed to drive on Wednesday ( Dec 7).</p> <p>The rule will not impact emergency vehicles or vehicles used for delivering food or foreign vehicles.</p> <p>Tuesday saw only even-numbered plates allowed on the roads. </p> <p>It means public transport will once again be free.</p> <blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en"><p lang="fr" dir="ltr"><a href="https://twitter.com/hashtag/Paris?src=hash">#Paris</a> aujourd'hui.
