      Hello

      After the first year of Stockholm's congestion charge, the local Left
      party has suggested putting in carfree zones in central Stockholm.
      They want to start with "the older parts of the City area" and exempt
      taxis, the disabled, ambulances and fire trucks, and certain
      deliveries. I believe "the older parts of the City area" means the
      central station and a few blocks north and east, as well as Gamla
      stan, the medieval town.

      As models they mention Freiburg, Gent, Zermatt, Copenhagen,
      Groningen, Strasbourg, Curitiba, and Venice.

      They point out that so-called environment cars do not solve the
      issues of pollution, congestion, noise and accidents.

      They conclude by noting that the rule of cars is not God-given and
      it's time to reclaim the streets, for the sake of a pleasant life and
      acting responsibly in the face of climate change.
