Today, September 22, is Car-free day! Over 2,000 European cities, including Kiev, celebrate this day. Car-free day encourages motorists to give up their cars for a day in favor of public transport, cycling or walking.
Very often we don’t consider about how we get around the city. Usually people just get in their cars and drive, even if it would be more convenient and efficient to use public transport, cycle or walk.
Car-free Day – A reason to refrain from the use of ones car for at least one day. The event takes place during the European Mobility Week, whose slogan states – Choose. Change. Combine. By actively trying to reduce ones use of their vehicle, we improve our health, the environment and save money.
