Two articles in the Financial Times highlighting a decline in car use.

In the City of London there are plans to remove cars from two busy roads to improve the environment for pedestrians.

In the US it is reported that young city dwellers are driving less, forcing the motor industry to rethink the role of the car.

Both these reports are consistent with trends in the developed economies in which the revival of city centres is facilitated by welcoming the young and pushing back the car.
