Madrid Mayor wants to ban all cars from the city

By Faiming_low on 17 Jan 2017 in Other News

Attached Image City mayor Manuela Carmena said that she would love to have all private cars banned from Madrid by the time she leaves office in May 2019.

As reported by Business Insider, the mayor announced the possibility of the ban of cars from its city center on a popular radio station in response to Madrid’s rising pollution levels recently. If this radical car ban turns into a reality, Madrid would be the first major European city to do so.

The ban would see the center of the city zoned off to all private vehicles and only local residents would have the parking rights. Also, only vehicles that can move around on the city’s streets would be low emissions delivery vehicles during working hours. The city's main road, which has six lanes, could also be exclusively used by bikes, buses and taxis only if the proposal goes ahead.

Since young, Fai Ming has always centered his life around cars. In fact his first word was 'car' and not 'mum' or 'dad'. Aren't kids cute?
