Paris To Go Car Free…

6 posts in this topic

One of Paris’s busiest and most charming avenues will be a lot more peaceful for one day every month from April. Cars will be banned from the avenue of Champs-Élysées, which has eight lanes of traffic helping to reduce pollution. This is not the first time Champs-Élysées has been car free as last autumn Paris prohibited vehicles between Bastilles and the Champs-Élysées including Bois de Boulogne and Bois de Vincennes.

 

This seems to be a growing ‘trend’ as Oslo is also planning to ban all cars from its city centre within the next four years and Dublin has also proposed plans to ban cars from certain areas of the city in 2017. What other destinations/ city centres do you think would be even more amazing minus the traffic?

I think it's a great idea! I think places like Mumbai, Hong Kong, Beijing, New York are few of the places that would be even more amazing minus the traffic if only for a day a month.

I love Paris, and strolling down the Champs-Élysées without the bustle of traffic would be lovely!

 

I think they need to sort out the roundabout that surrounds the Arc de Triomphe first though - you take your life in your hands there!!
