Going car free

Posted by Neil Harrison on 26th September 2016

Has life ever colluded to have you thinking about going car free? How different would life be if there wasn't a car sitting outside your house to use as you wish?

Barry Wood (a member of the Scottish Government marketing team) blogged about his experience of going car free. Read his thoughts on the good bits and the bad bits.  

While it might not  be possible to completely break the reliance on your car there are always opportunities to use it less. For example, think about whether you need to take the car for those shorter journeys. After all, if everyone in Scotland drove their car 5 miles less per week, this is the equivalent of taking nearly 70,000 cars off the road.
