Car Free Day Is Coming This Week

Tuesday, September 22 is Car Free Day, a day for people to remember that dependence upon a four-wheeled contraption with a burning motor that spews carcinogenic pollutants and gases that contribute to global warming is not the only way a human being can live. It’s a day for people to make an earnest effort to spend the day without stepping in a car.

green roadAs someone who lived mostly car-free for the first half of this year, I encourage you to participate in this Car Free Day. That said, I understand if you can’t manage to do it. Many people live in places or have obligations that make it difficult not to use a car.

For that reason, your Car Free Day can have two aspects. First, try to reduce or eliminate your use of a car that day. Second, consider what local, state and federal government actions could take place to make it easier for you to live without using a car every day – and take a step to support those actions.

Not every day is Car Free Day, but wouldn’t it be nice if we could move toward a future when every day could be?
