Independence (from your car) Day

Don’t forget, Monday is Independence (From Your Car) Day!

What better way to celebrate this great American holiday than to break free from the shackles of our automobiles. Let’s start a new American Revolution and sign the Declaration of Independence from Automobiles.

If we all join together we can win this fight and take back our country streets!

(p.s. I don’t really have a Declaration for you to sign. I just thought of this and went with it. If you like the idea of signing your name to an official Declaration of Independence from Automobiles email me and I’ll put something together.)

Enjoy the weekend!
