      Carfree day first occurred in La Rochelle France 1997
      In 2000 Bogota voted by referdendum to implement
      annual carfree day

      carfree day update feb 3, 20005

      Over a million cars taken off the streets

      83 tickets to car owners, tickets for circulating on
      car free dat are almost 100 dollars where minimum wage
      is about 150 dollars a month

      92 tickets given to bike owners

      NO2 levels down 62%

      CO2 levels demonstrate no significant reduction,
      attributed largely to public transport

      Sound pollution reduction down 1.8 decibles

      Business associations claimed that sales were down by
      42% during 2004 carfree day yet citizens surveyed
      continue to show strong support for carfree day

      best regards,
