Moving into a new home and community is a great time to think about how you can use your car less and try out some new ways of getting around. Why?

  • Fewer cars on the road help make streets nicer places
  • There’s less pollution, noise and congestion
  • People feel safer, your children are safer
  • With more people out and about, you’ll get to know your neighbours
  • Your street can be transformed into a vibrant place for the community to use, rather than just for passing traffic

Walking and cycling are healthy and cheap alternatives – they’re worth a try!
