The news was announced on June 21 by the Councillor for Citizen Protection, Javier Scotto, who was launching an awareness campaign for users of personal mobility vehicles (VMPs).
Scotto also launched a leaflet that explains to users of these modes of transport under which conditions they can use these areas, including rules on the use of walkways, pavements and pedestrian-only zones.
It also covers under what conditions a traffic exception may be declared by local police.
According to Scotto the change is designed to “promote sustainable mobility in the city” with the use of these vehicles, instead of other pollutants and to “improve safety” by allowing users to travel through car-free zones.
The news that the newly pedestrianised zones will be open to bicycles and those using mobility scooters will be widely welcomed, as was the closure of these roads to vehicles.
