6th Annual Car Free Day Long Island To Be Held Sept. 21

The sixth annual Car Free Day Long Island will take place on Friday, Sept. 21. 

Car Free Day is an international event celebrated in more than 2,500 cities in 50 countries in which people are encouraged to get around without cars and instead use alternative transportation such as transit, biking, subway, walking or carpooling.

Many areas of Long Island are becoming more bike-friendly, including Town of North Hempstead, which recently installed a bike rack outside of its town hall. Villages on the East End are friendly to pedestrians.

Residents are encouraged to consider the negative impact of single-occupancy vehicles on Car Free Day Long Island. Last year 6,808 Long Islanders pledged to be car free or car-light, which resulted in the avoidance of over 134,000 miles of driving and 67 tons of CO2 emissions.

To participate in this event, all you have to do is pledge to be car free or car-light on Sept. 21 by filling out the pledge form on www.CarFreeDayLI.com. Even if you’re already using alternative transportation modes, you can still pledge. Those who take the pledge will automatically be entered for a chance to win great prizes.
