Why Being Car-Free is Important to You: The importance of being Car-Free is dependant upon its interpretation. My interpretation is to motivate people to find alternative methods of transportation. Through journaling our experiences we may reveal obstacles, but also the possibilities that are available to citizens not only in Memphis, but throughout the country. Furthermore, It will prove that all ages are able to find alternatives of transportation. No longer will people have to rely on a billion dollar industry for transportation. No longer will the earth weep for a break from the poisonous gases that it has been forced to breathe. No longer will civilians say, “I can’t”. Because we will have proved that we can.
