That's rather pointless Masquerouge as 80% of cars in Paris intra-muros comes from Paris extra-muros. How is this faster and cheaper ? Do you think it's not expensive to park a car during a whole day in a car park ? What pisses me off the most in Paris is the segregation between the "City" and the "Banlieue". I can't bear this anymore. Parisians always talk as if they were only 2 million leaving between themselves and ignoring the 8 million people around. The Banlieue in Paris is almost considered as Soweto was in South Africa. If you ban cars from Paris, you cut a bit more Paris from its banlieue. You increase the distance. You don't even realize how elitist this could be. We should break those walls between the 75 and the rest of the city, not reinforce them even more. Talking about NYC, you were pretending Paris subway was as great as NYC subway, if not even greater than the NYC Subway. But I'm sorry, it isn't. If New York had the same subway system as Paris, then the subway wouldn't go in Brooklyn, the Queens or the Bronx. Then the subway would stay in Manhattan and would go nowhere else. That's EXACTLY what Paris subway is.
