Today, 22nd September is World Car-Free Day. This is being observed by not using the car today to combat air-pollution and to avoid traffic jams.

India’s  millennium city, Gurgaon, is observing it with the pledge that every Tuesday, between 7 am and 7 pm, it will not bring out its cars so as to avoid both air pollution and nightmare traffic jams, which the city is facing every day.
So four major roads of the city –   DLF Cyber City, Cyber Park area, Golf Course Road and Electronic City – that are lined with offices and which see the heaviest flow of traffic in the city every day, have turned car free today. Cars parked here will be towed away, the police said. People are travelling on bicycles and enjoying.
