International Car-Free Day is celebrated every year on September 22 to motivate motorists to give up their cars for a single day.
Seen as a great opportunity to reduce air pollution, International Car-Free Day promotes walking and cycling along with a safer environment as its benefits.
It provides a glimpse of how the world can be 365 days a year without any traffic.
History of the International Car-Free Day
Since the 1990s, multiple car-free days were organized in the United Kingdom and Iceland but all of them were unofficial.
Carbusters, which is now known as World Carfree Network made the campaign official by launching International Car-Free Day in 2000.
