World Car Free Day, is celebrated on September 22 that encourages motorist to give a break for their car. Some cities and countries will have organised events. The motive of world car free day is to promote cycling, walking in the development communities that are close the job location and shopping in walking distance.

Car free day was informally took place throughout 1990s and the first official car free day was organised in 2000 and is organised all over the globe. Cities like Bogota and Jakarta will close their central roads on world car free day and encourage walking and cycling events.

With global car free day has achieved its media coverage but in terms of events
it is difficult to achieve the real success since it required important
reorganization of the city transportation. Currently Bogota is the only city that
has large number of car free weekday event.
