Thanks Geoff Lawton for sharing;

   Vive la France: A fantastic overview of a remarkable “get cars off the streets” campaign that Paris has been waging over the past couple of decades: “Wrap your head around this: in terms of mode share, driving within Paris city limits has dropped about 45 percent since 1990, according to a recent paper in the French journal Les Cahiers Scientifiques du Transport. Meanwhile, the share of cyclists has increased tenfold over the same timeframe. Transit’s mode share has risen by 30 percent.” Full article with detailed stats and key takeaways can be read here. Great job, Paris!
