Participation 2007

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:
Today there is a street crossing the square in town. This street will be closed during the "in town whithout my car" event, and the activities during the day will claim the "street for people". Hopefully this is soon to be a permanent measure.
