European Mobility Week is launched today with much fanfare. The laudable objective set out on the official web site "is to facilitate widespread debate on the necessity for changes in behaviour in relation to mobility and in particular the use of the private car. As usual, the Car Free Day will be the highlight of the whole Week."
The East Anglian counties of Norfolk and Suffolk found a novel way to celebrate the week and contribute to the demise of the motor car. Drivers of the main bus operator, First Eastern Counties, started a week-long strike yesterday forcing the counties' 68,000 regular bus travellers to use private cars.
