What does London, New York City, Milan, Oslo, Barcelona, and Paris have in common? I’m sure there are multiple correct answers, but it’s my quiz, and the one I’m looking for is they all are working to restrict automobile traffic.
Berlin Autofrei is seeking to one-up all of them.
“If successful, the law would limit vehicle use to those with special exemptions, such as delivery vehicles, emergency services or people with disabilities.
Residents would only be permitted to use a car or van up to 12 times a year, for special circumstances such as moving house.
Public transport networks would be expanded, and roads would be redesigned to increase space for pedestrians and cyclists.”
Oly, Tumwater, and Lacey should be on that list!
Where you lead, others will follow.
