Much to the chagrin of many drivers, the days of private automobiles in the downtown areas of large cities is ending. Though it will take time, and much political turmoil, it will eventually become necessary to ban automobiles from the downtown streets of major cities. Only emergency vehicles, delivery trucks, taxis, and public transportation will be allowed to drive on the inner-city avenues.
Population densities are increasing every year as more tall condominiums are built. The streets will not be able to handle the increase. Pollution from auto exhausts will be another factor in forcing the ban of auto. The transition will be painful, but many European cities have already moved to limit cars in their downtown areas. It is only a matter of time before the total exclusion of private automobile use in inner cities is complete.
