World car free day

Posted on in Cycles News, Outdoor News

People are being encouraged to walk and cycle to work and school instead of driving in aid of World Car Free Day - a global initiative to lower carbon emissions.

trafficThe initiative on Friday (September 22) will see people across the globe ditching their cars in favour of walking, cycling or public transport.

The average UK commute increased from 27 to 29 minutes between 2011 and 2016, adding a total of 14 hours of commuting time for drivers each year, according to research from Company Car Today.

Unnecessary carbon emissions, wasted time and loss of productivity are just a few of the negatives associated with a lengthy car journey to the office or school.
