On September 20, the city of Brussels decided all its streets in honor of “Dimanche Sans Voiture,” or “Car Free Sunday ,” in order to combat pollution. As I mentioned here, once a year, the city has a Car Free day, where all vehicles, excluding public transport, emergency services, council vehicles and those with exceptional reasons, will be OFF the road for the day. 

Instead of driving, people of Brussels walked, biked, skateboarded or chose a number of other green transportation options for getting around the city. Since that day, I can’t stop asking myself:

Why isn’t there a car free day, every month?

If you’re already asking what the hell is the photo bellow, well…that’s a party into a city tunnel. Brussels is where they find the strangest ideas to party!!! And that’s awesome 🙂

Car free sunday, but with a fun slide in the middle of the street. Isn’t this wonderful?
