Long Island, NY - August 21, 2018 - Assemblyman Michael Montesano (R,C,Ref-Glen Head) is proud to support the 6th Annual Car Free Day LI on Friday, September 21. This event is part of an international movement to promote the use of alternative transportation such as public transit, carpooling, walking or biking. The goal is to reduce dangerous emissions, traffic and parking issues as well as to conserve energy, improve health and save money.
“Going car free, even for just a day, can help our overall environment and health significantly,” said Montesano. “I am proud to be supporting this campaign and to join my fellow Long Islanders in being car free, or car-lite, this September. This is a great way for our communities to come together to make a difference and create awareness for something as simple as limiting the use of our cars. I look forward to participating in this campaign this year and for many years to come.”
The campaign is being led by Car Free Day LI, 511NY Rideshare and Transit Solutions, in partnership with leadership from across Long Island. To pledge to be car free or car-lite, residents can visit the Car Free Day LI website to fill out the form.
