7 Cities That Are Starting To Go Car-Free

7 Cities That Are Starting To Go Car-Free | The New Public Administration: Arctic Bridge for Social Justice | Scoop.it
Urban planners are finally recognizing that streets should be designed for people, not careening hunks of deadly metal.

After over a hundred years of living with cars, some cities are slowly starting to realize that the automobile doesn't make a lot of sense in the urban context. It isn't just the smog or the traffic deaths; in a city, cars aren't even a convenient way to get around.

Now a growing number of cities are getting rid of cars in certain neighborhoods through fines, better design, new apps, and, in the case of Milan, even paying commuters to leave their car parked at home and take the train instead.

Unsurprisingly, the changes are happening fastest in European capitals that were designed hundreds or thousands of years before cars were ever built. In sprawling U.S. suburbs that were designed for driving, the path to eliminating cars is obviously more challenging.

Read further for more on the leaders moving toward car-free neighborhoods.

This knowledge is not new, Architects, Urban designers, City planners, and Government officials have know of this but it has not been put to practice until now. Cities are meant to be populated with people and not dominated by four wheel vehicles.
