World Car Free Day
September 22 @ 11:00 am - 3:00 pm
Stalls, Music, Games, Walks
Vehicles will be blocked from travelling along a key Liverpool road, the area that will be kept free of vehicles will stretch from the Rose Garden through to the Lock-Up – with buses set to be diverted around the closed-off area.
Ever since the first vehicle rolled onto the streets in 1886, the world has had a love-hate relationship with the motor car. Today, with over one billion motor vehicles on the roads around the globe, it sometimes seems as if we cannot escape the pollution, noise and danger that they produce.
One day a year is set aside to try and avoiding using cars and cycling, walking or using public transport instead. Car Free Day aims to take the heat off the planet for just one day by encouraging people to be less dependent on their cars and try alternatives.
Why not take action locally and avoid using your car!
