News on environmental zones and air pollution

City without cars?

During the conference « Hauptstadtkonferenz » of the Berlin Agency for electric mobility (eMO), the public transport agency BVG and the train association Deutsche Bahn spoke in favour of urban public traffic: in average, there are only 1,2 people in a car in Berlin moving with a medium speed of only 8 km/h! What a waste of public space and sad source of air pollution! Chairwoman of BVG Sigrid Nikutta even compared the car to horses: a nostalgic value surely exists and some people would always use cars during week-ends for their pleasure.
