LMP pledges to reduce motor vehicle traffic if in government

Opposition LMP's organisations in Budapest approved a political declaration at their congress on Saturday that aims to reduce motor vehicle traffic.

LMP said in a statement that if they enter government, their aim is to “go beyond words and take action that ensures Hungary’s move towards sustainability”.

The party wants to reduce traffic with proportional tolls on vehicle use and engine emissions. LMP would introduce a 30km/h speed limit in all residential areas with the exception of thoroughfares.

LMP also pledged to oppose the construction of “elite foreign universities” with taxpayer money, the expansion of Budapest’s international airport and the construction of new buildings in City Park.

The party said it would promote cycling and pedestrian traffic and increase green areas in cities.
