Car Ban Proposed in Central Park

A lawmaker in New York has introduced a plan to ban cars from Central Park and Prospect Park.

City Councilwoman Gale Brewer introduced the plan, which would keep cars from driving with both parks. The efforts have lured widespread support from citizens.

"Cars could still travel along the four roads that traverse the park east to west under her proposal, but those lanes don't interfere with cyclists and runners on the park's main drive.

Several council members floated a similar proposal in 2006, but it never got out of the Transportation Committee.

Mayor Bloomberg at the time opted to reduce driving hours in the park instead."
