Abstract Too many cars and never enough parking spaces: that's Paris! In this program, everyday people talk about what they think of traffic, how they commute to work, and how to buy a train ticket. In addition, a police officer explains the daily challenges of directing traffic in Paris - compounded by a state visit from the president of Egypt - and residents of Strasbourg debate the benefits and drawbacks of a controversial tramway system intended as a primary means of getting around in their city. A BBC Production.
