Paris Gets its Show on the Road

Citing climate as the “number one priority,” Parisian mayor Anne Hidalgo has announced plans to increase cycling lanes in 2017.

The city is also banning cars from the square around the Louvre and greatly reducing cars allowed in other major city areas. The idea is that with fewer cars, and greater infrastructure for cyclists, pedestrians, and public transport, daily pollution levels will start to decline.
