We spent some hours in Sligo town last week during a break in the North West.

The town has so much potential. The experience as a visitor though, would be soooo much better if all streets within one kilometre of the center were closed to traffic. A lot of the center was constantly full of idling cars stuck in traffic, mostly diesel, filling the air with toxic fumes.

We found it difficult enough at times to even cross streets.

Get traffic out of the center, provide community electric buses like we’ve seen in Bayonne and bike lanes for people to get around. It’s time to get rid of cars in these kinds of spaces.
