Richmond Park a rat run for 80% of cars

Richmond Park – a rat run for 80% of cars

I found this petition on 38 degrees. At present, based on Richmond Park’s own figures, the large majority of cars in the park (80%) are using it as a rat run. This is a Grade I listed area of natural beauty and scientific interest and yet cars are allowed to use it as a through road?!

This is the beginning of a re-evaluation of the use of cars in London.

Early in the New Year I will be setting up my own petition to reclaim Central London from cars, making it safe and enjoyable for the majority to use walking and cycling as the main forms of transport. This follows on from the radical changes announced in Madrid and Paris to ban cars in the centres of these cities.
