French cabinet minister Aurélie Filippetti bikes to work

French Minister of Culture Aurélie Filippetti rides a bicycle to a meeting at Elysee Palace in Paris as her bodyguard follows closely behind.

The government imposed emergency rules limiting car use in Paris to combat choking smog in recent days.

It’s good to see even cabinet level officials are following these rules. Fillippetti is a novelist and a politician representing the Moselle Département in the French National Assembly.
