Paris mayor bans vehicles to reduce traffic

Bertrand Delanoe replaces some motorways with bicycle routes to alleviate traffic and help pedestrians.

    Paris is often described as one of the world's most beautiful cities. However, like most capital cities, it suffers from choking traffic congestion.

    Now, Mayor Bertrand Delanoe has come up with a radical solution. He is banning cars and lorries from what had been some of its busiest roads.
