Paris Turned Into a Cyclist Paradise After Banning Cars from the Road for a Day

After this hell hole of news constantly coming out of Vegas, it’s time to take a break from the chaos and focus on something happier.

According to the Chicago Tribune, emergency vehicles, buses and taxis were still allowed on the streets from 11 a.m. until 6 p.m., but the streets still felt quite empty, especially at popular destinations like the Champs-Elysees:
