Car-Free Sunday, or Dimanche Sans Voiture, capped the 9th Annual Week of Mobility here in Brussels on 22 September, 2010. The goal is to encourage people to explore other modes of transportation, from various types of mass transit (trains, trams, buses) to non-motorized personal modes including bicycles, skateboards, and one’s own two feet.
My opinion, for those who haven’t already heard this seventeen times, is that enclosed, personal transport (particularly when motorized) is inherently anti-urban and should be only marginally present in cities. A single Dimanche sans voiture is a small but positive step toward toujours sans voiture.
