Could You Give Up Your Car For Lent?

Has the world gone crazy?? First the Pope announces he's stepping down, then a religious reference on a transportation blog and now religious leaders are suggesting you give up your car, or at least cut back on driving it, for Lent.

The Catholic and Protestant churches of Austria are promoting 'car fasting' or 'autofasten' in German, an initiative to encourage a change of independent mobility between Ash Wednesday (13 Feb) to Holy Saturday (30 March). And they've got a list of ways you can participate, including walking to church.

Copenhagenize has the story.
