Our local town centre Hight Street went 'Pedestrianised' many years back.
Previously it was bustling with daytime shoppers and very convenient to cycle through.
After 5pm the place came alive with restaurants doing a roaring trade.
Cars were not too much of a problem as there were many shoppers during the day that kept speeds down, and after hours it was a cruising strip where the guys drove very slowly for some reason ;-)
Now it is packed when the shops are open. Cycle at your peril due to dozy meandering shoppers not expecting any wheeled traffic.
And now when the shops close it becomes an intimidating environment with little reason for access. I was going to say ghetto but after a week visit to NY I will temper that comment.
So Car Free can be a double edged sword.
