The week is nearly over and I have just now gotten around to posting about the "Give Your Car The Day Off" week sponsored by The Clean Air Campaign and News Talk 750/WSB.

They make everything seem special; hopefully public transit, bicycles, and walking will gain some special-occasion-sparkle through this campaign. If pure novelty doesn't work, the Clean Air Campaign includes some thought-provoking tidbits on their site like:
