The participant is committed to:

Carrying out a Car-Free Day event by closing one or more streets to traffic, and opening it to pedestrians, cyclists and public transport. This should preferably happen on 22 September to mark your town or city as part of World Car-Free Day.
Zone opened to residents on Car-Free Day:
A ZSTA está localizada no centro da cidade, mais concretamente as Ruas Batalhoz e Serpa Pinto, que são as ruas de maior tráfego automóvel e de transeuntes. Esta é a zona por escelência de comércio do Cartaxo. A médio prazo, já em 2008, que a Rua Batalhoz se torne uma Rua Sem Tráfego Automével - Dar a Rua as Pessoas. Desta forma incentiva-se as pessoas a andarem mais e em segurança, incentivando ao mesmo tempo o comércio tradicional já que esta Rua é a principal rua de comércio do Cartaxo.
