Kevin Long of Cork Cycling Campaign explains what a car free day is, how they came about and why they're actually good for business.
Really excited to see some action in the direction of car-free thinking. I’ve never owned a car and living in the city enables me to walk or cycle anywhere within 5-25mins. Unfortunately, my excitement always comes with the bitter sweetness of Cork‘s inability to see things through and then give up on these due to a few voices of protest. Fingers crossed the car-free days will stick around and show everyone how beautiful it is to not breathe in exhaust when walking!
