Car journeys in Darlington drop

Car journeys in Darlington drop
A drop in the number of road journeys being taken in Darlington has been noted by a scheme aiming to encourage people to cut their carbon emissions and get healthy.

Do the Local Motion, a project operating at three UK sites, has noted that car journeys in Darlington have dropped by nine per cent.

At the same time bicycle journeys are up 65 per cent and journeys on foot have increased 15 per cent.

With road transport accounting for 22 per cent of all emissions, according to a 2006 report by the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs, the reduction could help combat rising emissions.

The scheme also hopes to get a further boost by promoting and taking part in International Car Free Day on September 22nd.

According to the Do the Local Motion, walking could replace taking the car on 21 per cent of the journeys around the city.
