Bombs Away

It took the fury of an IRA bomb, but Londoners are now convinced that they don't need to drive their cars everywhere in the city. Following an April 1993 explosion in the central financial and historic district, city planners adopted a temporary plan to limit car traffic in a one-square mile area. This summer, London's planning and transportation committee made that plan permanent. The committee's chairman said that since the plan went into effect, "the environment in the center of the city has improved immensely. Roadside pollution is down, crossing streets is much easier, and crime has been reduced (by 17 percent)." Blood nice, eh?
