Conor Faughnan: Talk of having Car Free Days in city just drives me mad

I’M baffled. I know that I come from a biased standpoint as the spokesman for the AA but I still can’t figure out the answer.

Why exactly is it a good thing for a day to be ‘car free’? What is it supposed to achieve?

Lord Mayor Oisin Quinn is pushing the old idea again. Like most Dubliners I am all in favour of making our streets more pedestrian friendly. It is a good thing on an ongoing basis to have the city centre as a pleasant space that people can enjoy.
