FIND OUT MORE
WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW:
Milan, one of Italy's busiest cities, plans to ban cars from its city center to reduce pollution.
If approved, the car ban will be implemented in 2024, with surveillance cameras used for enforcement.
Milan is one of Europe's most polluted cities, with fine particle levels far above the World Health Organization's safe limit.
WHY A BAN?
Mayor Giuseppe Sala aims to improve air quality in the city, which has pollutant levels nearly four times the safe limit.
HOW WILL IT WORK?
The move will make Milan's city center more pedestrian-friendly, especially in the Fashion Quadrilatero area.
The ban exempts residents with garages, those accessing car parking, taxis, and public transport users.
