  • Hi all, here is also an article from today with a similar subject. It mentions WCN`s AGM, me and my autofrei leben! club. I had a phone call with one of the authors a few days ago. He said, he personally lives carfree, and he was very surprised to see that there are carfree organisations. He liked that. I think, for Germans this article is very surprising, because nobody expects...

  • Hi all, I guess you have heard from these songs against quiet cars from the "National Federation of the Blind". Now a few German newspapers reported about that.

  • I wonder if they know the existing small "BikeCity" in Vienna ? They don`t mention it on their website.

  • Hi, look here: http://www.autofrei-wohnen.de/usa.html I started a page like you`re looking for, but it is only a very short list. It`s in German, but with some English subtitles (in lilac letters). So if you want to create a webpage on carfree vacation destinations in the US, feel free to use what I collected - and let me know that I can link it from my page ! There is also this...

  • Hi Joel, I don`t know, if those rich TignePoint people "hate cars". They are still addicted: did you see that they hide all the cars in underground garages ? That will cost much money, doesn`t solve any problem with air pollution, and stabilises the existing car-oriented structure around. To me, those optical carfree quarters are only one small (& slow) step towards carfree cities...
