A car-free day in Addis Ababa

The Ethiopian capital of Addis Ababa has just had its sixth Car-free Day, a monthly initiative launched by the government to encourage non-motorized transportation and fight air pollution.

Although many parts of the city remained open to cars, on May 12, several major arteries were closed down for cars. Overall traffic was lower than usual in the frequently jammed capital of around four million people.
