Today has been declared National Car Free Day. Minister of Transport, Jeff Radebe, announced this in an attempt to encourage the use of public transport. Between 6 A.M and 9 A.M, as well as between 4 P.M and 6 P.M today designated vehicles will use bus and taxi lanes only. The route from Mitchell’s Plain to Cape Town will also be closed to cars. This route starts in Mitchell’s Plain, into Vanguard Drive and continues on the N2, before joining the Main Road in Mowbray.
