Weak Signal's description 
Environmental reasons and increasing chaos from a rising number of cars has led to European cities increasingly banning individual transport. Many European cities have already created designated zones for pedestrians and additionally introduced city tolls to enforce a reduction of inner city transport. A few small cities and islands are entirely car-free.
