      Car-free Day drives home city's pollution concern
      China Daily, 6-15
      http://www.chinadaily.com.cn/english/doc/2004-06/15/content_339364.htm

      "Since the world's first Car-free Day was held in France with the slogan
      "In Town Without My Car" in 1998, two Chinese cities have decided to take
      a stance - Chengdu in the southwestern province of Sichuan and now
      Shenzhen."

      The article's claim that "100,000 people, instead of driving their cars,
      walked, pedaled or rode buses to work that day" is impressive, though it's
      unspecified whether those are people who otherwise would have driven, or
      whether many of them don't drive normally. Shenzhen has a population
      of 4.7 million.
