22 September 2019 will be a "Day without cars" in the Romanian capital Bucharest, as the circulation of motor vehicles in certain areas will be prohibited for several hours, according to a draft decision adopted and announced by the City Hall. The initiative is part of the European Mobility Week 2019 events coordinated between the EU countries.

Tomorrow, between 9.00 and 17.00, the circulation of motor vehicles, including LPG, electric vehicles with 2, 3 or 4 wheels is prohibited in the designated area. In fact, the designated area is rather narrow: in essence, two east-west boulevards crossing the central area of Bucharest that are usually crowded due to a lack of alternativess for those wanting to cross the capital city.

Gabriela Firea, Mayor of Bucharest also udpated the public on the on-going public consultations about the vignette to be paid by all cars registered elsewhere from Bucharest, but circulating in the capital city. Firea added a notable amendment, promising to settle the situation for those actually living in the Romanian capital but having their cars registered in other cities.
