Kings of the road: Malta snubs ‘car-free day'

Friends of the Earth (FoE) Malta has criticised the authorities for not organising any car-free day events in Malta this week, as part of the European Mobility week celebrated by many European Union (EU) countries.
It also encouraged people to take individual action throughout the year.
The environmental NGO said local and European citizens were very worried about pollution and urban mobility.
“In many of our polluted towns and cities, people complain of a poor quality of life. Exhaust fumes from old cars and buses, traffic jams and noise pollution all affect our quality of life. And yet, the numbers of cars on the Maltese roads keep on increasing,” FoE Malta insisted.
