Is this a practical solution? Can we just ban cars and be done with it? Some cities are trialling it, but the problem is that it’s either an odd day here and there, or a temporary study to see what effect it may have. Neither of those options takes into account the longer-term, aside from health benefits.

It’s all very well proclaiming ‘30% less pollution’ but if the city centre shuts down because people can’t easily get there, what happens then?
What effect would this have on your daily life?

You need clever people at the top to do progressive things like this.

Absolutely! People with great vision and community-oriented, not corporate-oriented.

I don't own a car, never had a driving lesson and I don't rely on the state or anyone. Just walk 20 mins each day to work. Saves me a fortune not owning a car, not to mention money that would be needed for suffering from health problems from air pollution (asthma, cancer etc)
No. I Enjoy driving, we are not Copenhagen we are Melbourne Victoria and it's a lot bigger place, people live in suburban areas.

But this only works in Europe where there are smaller, more dense cities. Not gonna happen in Australia or the USA, Canada etc.
No doubt cancer rates in those cities will fall dramatically, as well as a number of obesity related health issues.

Why not adopt European speed limits road rules. Australian speed limits and road rules are a joke to the world.
