1. with immeidate start, set up car free day once a month for three months. after the initial three-moth period introduce car free sundays every week. three months later: introduce car free weekends etc.
Ridiculous! I barely use my car, but when I do need to use it, I need to use it at the weekends (I'm at work the rest of the week).
However, encouraging more sustainable travel needs to start in the schools. On my trip to work in the mornings, I could easily
take the no. 78 from Grange Road
to OKR to switch onto the no. 53 but I don't, I walk. Unlike a lot of schoolgirls doing the reverse journey - from OKR to Grange Road
, ON THE BUS. I'm sure that more people would switch from car to bus if their morning bus ride wasn't such a nightmare because the bus is rammed with schoolkids. And with fewer cars on the road, more people would cycle.
