Care Free Day



One of the interesting developments of recent years is the revival of local fĂȘtes and festivals in London districts, often accompanied and marked by a "Car-Free Day" when people can roam happily and safely on streets otherwise occupied by traffic. This photo of an elegant Triumph Mayflower was taken at my local festival.

It's funny how wedded people are to the car as personal transport, and yet how much they enjoy the occasional day they leave them behind. Now I'd agree that there are times when you have to use the car, but so often it is quicker, easier and better for all if you hop on a bike, or walk, or take public transport.
