In town without my car
Today was the “In town without my car” campaign with almost 1300 cities participating in different way. In Karlstad, Sweden we let famous inhabitants challenging the public, in advertisements, to set their car away for one journey today. More than 400 people took up the challenge. If that would be the everyday situation it would release around 10 000 square meters of parking space and spare outlets of approximately 2 tons of carbon dioxide.

In fact, I was in town all day without my car, but I'm rather well-off having bicycling distance to my job.
