To participate in this fun and worthwhile event, all you need to do is fill out the pledge form, then go car free or rely less on your car by going car-lite from September 20th through the 22nd. It’s that simple! Once you pledge, you’re automatically entered for a chance to win great prizes such as an Apple iPad! Already car free? That’s great, and since you’re doing the right thing, you also get the same chance to win prizes when you fill out the pledge form.

Car Free/Car Lite Days are organized in various cities throughout the world in different ways, but with the common goal of taking cars off the streets. The benefit to greater society is a day with less traffic congestion, a greener environment and reduced gasoline demand. Today, Car Free/Car Lite Day includes celebrations in 1,500 cities in 40 countries.

Help make Car Free Days on September 20, 21 & 22, 2013 a great success, pledge today!
