Participation 2014

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:
Gyomaendrőd-Hősök útja egy központi részlege a városnak. Az út egyik oldalán Általános Iskola működik másik oldalán boltok sorakoznak így az átmenő autós forgalom igen nagy szokott lenni.A szülők figyelmét felhívjuk aki teheti legalább ezen a héten hozza gyermekét biciklivel esetleg sétálva, hogy mindenkihez eljusson az üzenet: A mi utcánk a mi jövőnk!
