‘Car-free Day’ on Jan 6, opt for a bicycle instead

Hindustan Times: "Taking cue from Delhi to reduce pollution and decongest city roads, deputy commissioner Varun Roojam will cycle to work and several senior judges and government officials will opt for carpooling to observe January 6 as a “car-free day”.
Speaking to HT, DC Roojam said, “Though a symbolic effort, I will go to work on Wednesday on a bicycle to spread the larger message of a traffic-free city that relies primarily on public transport, walking or cycling. Traffic has increased manifold in the city, and we all must give up our vehicles wherever possible.
...“A bicycle or two-wheeler takes almost negligible space as compared to a four-wheeler that uses approximately 10 feet of space on the road. Therefore, opting out of travelling in cars would not only decrease pollution but also decongest the city roads,” Virk added.”"
