CAR-FREE day at Dubai

Wednesday, Feb 17 is car-free day @ Dubai.
Wow, that is quite inspiring! ...at the same time ambitious. Dubai's public transport is not ready yet for a car-free day, esp on a working day.
Weather permitting, people can walk to work or cycle around. But that will be contrary to the very essence of Dubai's ( entire ME) lifestyle. And it is too late to get few camels back on duty too !
But, it is a great goal to work to. Hope more cities in ME will adopt a similar initiative and get the participation of  all citizens, especially educational and health institutions.

Brilliant thought... We should have more of these and start having "only bicycle" days...
