  • Description

    ROME, WITH AN ESTIMATED 650-THOUSAND VEHICLE OWNERS, HAS ONE OF THE LARGEST TRAFFIC PROBLEMS IN EUROPE. THE PROBLEM IS CREATED BY THE RELUCTANCE OF MANY DRIVERS TO LEAVE THEIR CARS AT HOME AND TRAVEL TO WORK BY PUBLIC TRANSPORT.
    SO VAST HAVE THE CITY'S TRAFFIC PILE-UPS BEEN RECENTLY THAT THE ROME TRAFFIC COMMISSION HAS RECOMMENDED STRINGENT PROHIBITIONS ON PARKING WITHIN THE CITY DURING THE MORNING RUSH HOURS.
    ONE MAN AND HIS DAUGHTER HAVE OVERCOME THE PROBLEM IN THEIR OWN WAY - SIGNOR ALDO MIGLIOSIS GOES TO WORK ON ROLLER SKATES, AND HIS DAUGHTER, PATRIZIA, SKATES TO SCHOOL.
    SIGNOR MIGLIOSI AND PATRIZIA ARE EXPERTS ON A ROLLER SKATES, AND THEY MOVE THROUGH THE CITY MUCH FASTER THAN THE SLOW MOVING TRAFFIC.
    THE SCHEME RECOMMENDED BY THE ROME TRAFFIC COMMISSION IS TO PROHIBIT PARKING IN THE CITY UNTIL 0930 -- AN HOUR WHEN ALMOST EVERYONE IS AT WORK. WITH NOWHERE TO PARK, THE COMMISSION BELIEVES, MOTORISTS WOULD BE FORCED TO RELY ON PUBLIC TRANSPORT -- OR PERHAPS ROLLER SKATES, LIKE THE MIGLIOSIS.
