World car-free day is…. uh, was yesterday (Thursday)

There’s even a website dedicated to the special day at www.22september.org, though it seems to cover the topic of car-free living so comprehensively that they forgot to mention Sept. 22.
I was in Madison, WI on Car Free Day last year, and I remember it well as I saw the city’s mayor give a sincere and impassioned speech that morning on how important it was to Madison’s progressive culture. Wait a minute, I think I blogged that.
Unfortunately, most of the news on the concept is outside the U.S., but as highlighted in the yesterday’s entry, that should be changing soon enough, especially with people like Sherman Lewis around.
