Pietons Seuelement

If you've ever watched an action movie shot in Paris, there was probably a car chase scene through the streets where they drive along the lower quay side of the Seine and under the bridges. Those streets were major thoroughfares allowing cars to roll along free of traffic lights and making for good high speed chase scenes.

They are no more. The mayor has blocked them all off and turned the entire lower quay into a sort of blacktop beach accessible only to pedestrians, bikers and skateboarders. You could walk the entire length of the city along the river. The locals seem to love the idea but now traffic on the upper quay is crazy and commuters and taxi drivers hate it.

On the other hand, robbing a bank and using a car as for a get away would not be a smart thing to do.
