Daniel Convissor's Web Site (is in the midst of reconstruction):
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?
