Madrid announces new rules of the road in bid to banish traffic from center


Madrid City Council is set to approve a new Sustainable Mobility Ordinance that will change the way residents move around public spaces. The new measures, which will take effect between five and 15 days after the council approves them on Friday, introduce a speed limit of 30km/h on all one-way streets and on single-lane two-way streets. Under the new rules, motorcycles will not be allowed to park on sidewalks less than three meters wide or near pedestrian crossings. Bicycles will be able to make right turns at red lights where indicated. And new traffic restrictions will go into effect in the downtown area on November 23.
