We've already reported on Milan's congestion charge (see related below), something motorcycles do NOT have to pay, since they are allowed to go into the city without paying the tax.

After the first week of the congestion charge, authorities stated that traffic inside the inner city was reduced by 37%! The number of cars dropped from 122,000 to 77,000 per day during the operating hours of the congestion charge. Carbon emissions dropped 30%.

This is good news. Not only does it mean that motorcycles are circulate more freely inside the city (and for free), but also we will be breathing in better air.

Milan Area C
The authorities in Milan, Italy are using their grey matter. A first? Maybe, but at least motorcycles will profit from this moment of lucidity.

January 16th 2012 sees the start of a congestion charge into the inner center of Milan, called Area C. Everyone must pay to drive into the city, except, motorcycle and scooters.

They are seen as a solution to traffic problems.
