September 22, European Day without Cars

22/09/2021

The World No Car Day is celebrated every year on September 22, where the main objective of this day is to discourage the use of the automobile seeing that its large-scale use causes great environmental damage (air and acoustic contamination), inculcate the citizens to leave this means of transport for a day and try new means of travel.

The origin of the date goes back to the oil crisis of 1973, where the concern for the oil supply prompted several European governments the idea of ??leaving the car parked and promoting more efficient means of transport.

In October 1994, the first days without cars were organized. Initially the cities of Reykjavík (Iceland), La Rochelle (France) and Bath (Great Britain) take the initiative to implement the Day Without Cars. The first country to implement the campaign at the national level is Great Britain in 1997. And in the year 2000 it is constituted as a European initiative by the European Commission.

This day reminds us that we must change the mentality and opt for alternative means of transport, friendly to the environment.
