Gurgaon to observe Car-free Day every Tuesday
The Gurgaon traffic police will observe every Tuesday as ‘Car-Free Day’ in a bid to free the city roads from congestion and encourage people to use alternate modes of transportation. The initiative will be implemented on the World Car Free Day, observed on September 22. The city will be celebrating ‘Car Free Day’ (CFD), an initiative by Gurgaon Administration organised by Gurgaon Traffic Police and Gurgaon Municipal Corporation with support from NASSCOM, Embarq India and Rapid Metro. Joint Commissioner of Police Bharti Arora said that with one lakh new cars being registered every year in Gurgaon, this was the best time for the city to take up the ‘Car Free’ challenge.
