Carfree Cities

World Car Free A carfree day for your city? What a great idea! But if you think it's just a quick no-brain public relations rumble and simple to do, think again.

European cities observe car-free day
European cities stage an annual car-free day on Wednesday aimed at reclaiming, for a few hours at least, traffic-choked streets and at cleansing urban air fouled by exhaust fumes. More than a thousand cities and towns that are home to 120 million people - most of them in the European Union but including locations in Asia and Latin America - have promised measures to encourage public transport or seal off the centre, giving freedom to pedestrians, bikes and cultural festivities.
