Adapted from VOA "Madrid to Ban Old Cars by 2025 in Crackdown on Air Pollution" March 13, 2017 4:45 PM.

Extraits

Madrid's city government announced (passé/announce) plans on Monday to ban the oldest and most polluting vehicles from the city center by 2025 in a bid to crackdown on air pollution.

The local government will prohibit (présent/will/prohibit) the use within the city's limits of gasoline cars registered before 2000 and diesel-powered cars registered before 2006, which at the moment account (présent/account) for 20 percent of all those registered.

The ban would lower (passé/will/lower) nitrogen dioxide levels in the city by an estimated 15 percent, a poisonous gas behind respiratory problems, Madrid's local government said (passé/say) in a presentation.

Madrid has failed (présent/have>>participe passé/fail) to meet European Union-set limits on air quality for the last eight years. Other European cities such as Paris and Berlin have already put (présent/have>>participe passé/put) similar plans in place to curb emissions.

This is (présent/be) plan A for air quality in Madrid. It's (présent/be) plan A because there can't be (présent/can/be) any plan B,” Madrid's mayor Manuela Carmen said (passé/say) at an event to present the new plan.

Madrid's local government has allocated (présent/have>>participe passé/allocate) 544 million euros ($580.83 million) to completing 30 measures included in the plan, which also encourages (présent/encourage) greater use of renewable energy and regenerating urban areas, according to the presentation.
