thecarchik (1520545) writes "Can you imagine a future--thirty-nine years from now--where there are no engines humming, no exhaust smells, no car sounds of any kind in the city except the presumably Jetsons-like beeping of EVs? The European Commission, the governing body of the European Union, can, and it has a transportation proposal aiming to do just that by 2050.
Paris was the first city to suggest a ban on gas guzzlers in their city core, but this ban takes it to whole different level by planning to ban all cars completely from the city streets. While Paris was motivated by reduced pollution, the EU is focused on wider scope of reduced foreign oil dependence, reduced greenhouse gas emissions, increased jobs within the EU, and improved infrastructure for future economic growth."
