Carbon Fast - Action 2 - Car Free

It's day 2 of the Carbon Fast. Today's action is to live a less fuel-intensive life by commiting to one car-free day per week. Coincidentally i received this photo today - a view of what the roads might be like with less traffic.

But going car free doesn't have to mean riding. It can mean catching the train, bus or ferry. Or arranging activities such that one day per week everything is close to home. Apart from saving petrol money yourself, reduced road congestion means everyone travels quicker.

This might be the easiest of the 40 actions for me. I go car free as my regular habit, so 1 day a week is a piece of cake.
