also, Naples has banned traditional pizza making(!!) read on ×

“Surprisingly, a six-hour daily ban on vehicles is enough to make a difference. Studies by UCLA that tested pollution levels during CicLAvia, Los Angeles’s regularly scheduled car-free festival days, showed dramatic drops in particulate matter …”
Beijing and Delhi are both planning major initiatives to kick cars off their streets, at least part of the time. Now even cities that aren’t famous for their pollution are taking drastic measures to clean up their air. Today, Milan’s streets are filled with bikes and pedestrians as part of three-day car ban.

nice article. have ridden the metro to/from dwtn-all over as a tourist, have yet to pedal elay ×

» “…To make a change in this city — a change in traffic, a change in emissions waste, a change in lifestyle — we’ll need a little hand-holding. And that’s OK.”
If someone had told me six months ago I would be bicycling in the street past Staples Center at the peak of a weekday morning commute, I wouldn’t have believed it. Like many Los Angeles residents, I’m terrified by the idea of being surrounded by cars in city traffic without the protection of a ton or so of steel around me.

Bike angel : ( RIP Mary Brown
Mary Brown, a preservation planner who excelled at distilling the qualities of everything from Golden Gate Park to Sam Jordan’s Bar, died of lung cancer in San Francisco on Dec. 10. “Mary worked on high-profile and clearly significant subjects, like Golden Gate Park, but she was no less interested in going beyond the facades of everyday buildings,” Joslin said.
