Love Your Car? These Cities Want To Ban Them

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.
