Car-free day Car-free day

Mercogliano carries out a Car-Free Day 2007 and closes off one or more streets to traffic, and opens it to pedestrians, cyclists and public transport.

Zone opened to residents on Car-Free Day:
Each local authority was asked to provide comprehensive information about its overall transport policy, measures implemented and actions undertaken to promote sustainable mobility. The questionnaire was focused on permanent measures the local authority had implemented or intended to launch shortly. Measures were included which had been made permanent in the local authority, which contributed to modal transfer from private motorised traffic to more sustainable modes of transport and to a more sustainable urban mobility in general.
