More than 8,000 people call on Sadiq Khan to launch London's first-ever 'Car Free Day'

5 May, 2018

More than 8,000 people have backed a petition calling on Sadiq Khan to launch London’s first ever ‘Car Free Day’.

As part of a drive to cut air pollution in the capital, nearly 100 organisations have urged the Mayor of London to ban private cars on September 22.  An open letter was sent this week to Mr Khan by groups including Friends of the Earth, environment law firm ClientEarth, King's College London researchers and neighbourhood forums across 15 London boroughs.
