Authorities in Barcelona are set to ban old cars from driving in the city on working days.

According to The Guardian, the initiative, which comes into effect in 2019, will see all cars built before January 1997 and vans built before October 1994 banned from the roads of Barcelona and 39 of its neighbouring municipalities during working days.
