Positive Future #180 (Feature photo – Guiseppe Sala, Mayor of Milan, Italy – photo Presidenza della Republica)
Milan, Italy is one of those international cities of around 1.4 million people. It is the middle of a much large metropolitan complex of 5.3 million people.
The mayor of Milan – Guiseppe – just announced that the city is planning to ban diesel cars starting January 21, 2019. At the core of the plan is a low-emissions zone that will include 180 cameras on all entrance routes to the city that will monitor traffic. The new regulation will initially be a Monday-Friday daytime activity focusing first on older and more polluting diesel cars.
What makes this event potentially impacting is that there are a number of major cities around the world that have been threatening to do something similar. Mayor Sala may be the first Mayor to take action, but he is just the tip of the iceberg.
