A car free future is seen by many as a necessity in this age of climate crisis, and it seems like it is supported by many across three major global cities.
Polling of residents of London, New York and Paris by Survation for the pressure group Car Free Megacities(opens in new tab) showed that around half of people favour their city centres going car free, with exceptions, and more than two-thirds support a reduction in the number of vehicles in their urban areas.
The data showed that from a sample of 1,073 people in London, 1,095 in Paris and 1,085 in New York, 72%, 66%, and 72% of the population respectively support cutting cars in the city.
