City Living - Approach City 30
In 2012 and 2013, a working group "City living" of the Avenir France Rue has met regularly to clarify the contours of the "city living", the consequences of automotive excess, the modalities of a reduction in the square and the speed of motor vehicles and the importance of developing alternative methods.
This enabled the drafting of a policy brief life, the city, the city to live, validated by the Office Zukunftstrasse France, finally gives some working tracks for a successful city to live in. An important documentation is available on the website eur.
The approach 30 km / h in France
