Melbourne city councillor proposes car-free day: ‘Unworkable’ say mayor, premier

A City of Melbourne councillor has proposed a ‘car-free’ day for 2017, shutting private cars and motorcycles out of the CBD. Councillor Richard Foster described his plan as a step in offering the city an alternative to the worsening congestion that clogs the inner city and suburbs. "This is just about getting people used to the idea ... and over time, obviously well into the future, we may well see a time when we don't have cars in the city at all," Foster told ABC News this week.
