Mayors on one-way street to head-on collision

Police in Paris are dealing with traffic anarchy after the mayors of two feuding suburbs declared the same busy street one-way - but in opposite directions.

There was chaos among bemused drivers at the point where the rival systems converged, with all traffic forced down one side road.

The confusion followed a decision by the Mayor of Levallois who wanted to introduce a one-way system to free up traffic through his borough.

Fearing an overspill into his district, the Mayor of Clichy, Gilles Catoire, brought in a one-way system running the opposite direction.

The local prefect, representing the French state, has issued a decree ordering the immediate return of two-way traffic in Clichy, accusing its Mr Catoire of provoking serious disorder.

Mr Catoire is refusing to back down, saying he will challenge the decision in court.

The main accomplishment of almost all organized protests is to annoy people who are not in them.
