Car-free day sure makes all the surrounding sidestreets dangerous places filled with manic drivers.

I simply leave mount pleasant on car free day. I drive far away and go for a nature walk while the so called green people search endlessly for the last free parking spot. Which happens to have rental bikes parked in them now.

I would have enjoyed it more if it was "Free Car Day"

I saw a cyclist run a stop sign and by doing so he narrowly missed getting t-boned by a car that was using the same intersection at the same time. He became enraged with the driver and that was when I interjected and reminded him that he was the one who ignored the stop sign and that I had to jump out of his reckless path myself. He then suggested that I go fck myself as he rode away. I'm not the only one who's growing weary of cyclists with attitudes.

I live just off of Main st. Car free day is the only day of the year no one can find parking in front of my building. That irony aside ....

I know it is fun for people but when homegirl wants a quick coffee after working the night shift at the hospital... and she can't sleep because the car free mayhem outside her window.... and the coffee line is 30 minutes because its car free day and the entire city is in her way... its hard to see the joy in the event. WHICH by the way is primarily about consumerism.

I drive to commercial to get a coffee on car free day.

Cyclists. I guess we don't really notice the ones who obey the rules of the road, and the ones who are ignorant jerks give the rest of them a bad name. Regardless, I'm so totally sick of cyclists and the municipal governments who are taking away lanes and parking spaces away for the benefit of bicycles. Some of us for many reasons can't take the bus or ride a bike but I guess we no longer count.

Get outside the city. During Italian day on the drive I went to a couple wineries with friends in Langley. It was quiet, peaceful and beautiful.
