Paris Makes Life Difficult for Drivers
 
08/25/2001
Paris Makes Life Difficult for DriversSweeping measures went in efferct in Paris that are aimed at reducing people out of their cars. The mayor Bertrand Delanoe said, "It's only by making life hell for motorists that we will force them to give up their cars," said Yves Contassot, the Green deputy mayor, who rides a bicycle.

This week municipal workers laid heavy kerbing sealing off stretches of the Rue de Rivoli. Commuters driving to work found themselves jammed in narrow lanes while buses, cyclists and taxis cruised past. The scheme to create "civilised spaces" will be extended to many of the main boulevards while public transport is improved. Cyclists and roller-bladers seemed delighted yesterday, but motorists' groups have launched legal challenges to the measures.
