Check the video…
What would be the best title for the video above?
1. Car Free Day or
2. No Car Day?
Which makes more sense? The first one or the second when it is meant what the video plays? To get the gist of the narration? Or the essence of the video? Which?
according to online sources:
1. an automobile.

So, your best answer for the title of the video?
Answer: one. Makes sense right, if title one is chosen.
I guess the people who came up with the phrase “Car Free Day” should look and think again, maybe to the East i.e. China. And, paraphrase it to “No Car Day” if the meaning or what is being put forward is not what has been nicely put into moving picture as above. Well, maybe not just the East, maybe common sense would do here.
As for Bahasa Indonesia, would we still use “Car Free Day” and “Hari Bebas Kendaraan” or “No Car Day” and “Hari Tanpa Kendaraan”?
We know the answer, right?
Dwell on it.
