As small cities successfully implement plans to ditch their vehicles, many large urban areas are determined to follow in their footsteps.
According to Business Insider, a number of major cities have joined the "car-free" movement.
It aims to reduce air pollution and improve safety among residents.
Most cities that are starting to ban cars are located in Europe. More and more streets in London are pedestrian-only.
In Madrid, older cars are banned. And in Paris, cars are banned the first Sunday of every month.
However, a few others, such as New York, are making considerable strides.
Besides outright bans, cities are trying to encourage cycling and make public spaces more pedestrian-friendly.
