September 22nd, is World Car Free-Day. So why not give up your car for one day and walk, cycle or use public transport to get around. This movement aims to show just how dramatically cars are affecting the environment, by giving up your car for one day you help to reduce Co2 pollution, so it’s the perfect time to do a bit for the environment and get that repair or vehicle health check done. Adopting a more sustainable method to get around helps reduce greenhouse gasses and traffic congestions.
Many large cities all over the world shut their central roads off for special days like this, forcing the public to use alternative methods of transport (can you imagine shutting the M80?)
If you are thinking you might do it if the weather is nice, that is a poor excuse with Glasgow
being the wettest place in Scotland so don’t let that stop you! Make a difference and drop it and walk it. It will be good for the environment, your waistline and your little car will get a rest to and
