Venice, August 26 - Venice plans to limit traffic
in the Grand Canal, the mayor said Monday, following the death
earlier this month of a tourist aboard a gondola that crashed
with a water bus.
According to Mayor Giorgio Orsoni, the city will soon
announce restrictions for boats in the major thoroughfare during
peak traffic, and gondolas will be permitted only after a
certain hour in the morning.
Boat congestion near the Rialto Bridge was blamed as a
factor behind the crash that killed 50-year-old Jaochim Vogel
from Germany on August 17.
Blood and urine tests from the gondolier showed he was
under the influence of cocaine and hashish at the time.
