“Italy’s fashion and design capital, Milan, is banning cars from driving within city limits on Sunday to reduce air pollution levels. This means that, on Sunday, residents and tourists in the city will have to get around using bikes, electronic scooters or public transport from 10:00 a.m. (9:00 GMT) to 6:00 p.m.
The measure is part of the city’s efforts to tackle smog and air pollution, problems that Italy has been facing particularly in Milan and Turin. The car ban is likely in response to a 2018 report by the European Court of Auditors stating that cars are a major source of urban air pollution and that banning their use is the most effective measure to tackle the problem.”
