Palma in Mallorca/Spain has progressively transformed parts of the historic centre into an access regulated area called ACIRE.
The restricted traffic zones (ACIRE) are special areas where only the traffic of authorized vehicles and other specific vehicles with a permit are allowed to enter.

Main features of the ACIRE in Palma:
- pedestians have the right of way
- cyclists are allowed in both directions
- maximum speed is 20 km/h - only permit holders are allowed to enter
