Why Being Car-Free is Important to You: Living and practicing a healthy lifestyle are very important to me, and being car-free helps me to do just that. Being car-free requires me to live an active lifestyle every day, by walking and taking public transit to and from my destinations. Walking and riding the bus also helps to reduce the stress of my commute rather than using a car. Being car-free also means that I contribute less to traffic and pollution, which is important to me because it supports public health. If we each do a small part in reducing our automobile use, we can make a large collective difference in our own health and the health of our community.
