The Italian city of Naples is currently half-way through a 6-day ban on all cars, motorcycles and scooters being driving during daytime hours.

Ciro Esposito is the head of the local traffic police.

He says the move is part of a broader initiative to knock down pollution.

"The ban on traffic circulation is part of a series of measures taken by the municipal administration starting from 1 January and which regulate the kind of fuel that can be used by the ships docking at the port, visiting cruise ships, to encourage less heating of houses, and also to stop traffic circulation."

Vehicles in Naples are currently banned from 8am to 4 pm.

Offenders will face stiff fines if caught.

Instead, people in Naples are being forced to use public transportation or bicycles.

Similar bans have also been imposed in other Italian cities over this past year, including Milan and Rome.
