A car is a very convenient mode of transportation. However, cars produce emissions like carbon monoxide and nitrogen gases that can harm people and create a negative effect in our ecological system.

Air pollution is a major problem of this generation. Unclean air negatively affects the health of all living creatures, especially man. This is why cities all over the world are trying to fight air pollution, like Oslo, a Norwegian city. Their solution? Ban all cars!

The city of Oslo has taken steps to eliminate air pollution and its city council is planning to ban all cars by the year 2019. As far as 60 kilometers of bicycle lanes are now being planned to be built. They will permanently ban and get 350,000 cars off the road by 2019.
