1995 model year and older vehicles produce 19 times more air pollution than 2004 and newer models. That’s one of the messages that the Retire Your Ride program was delivering at the Dundas Cactus Parade last week. Retire Your Ride is Canada’s vehicle recycling program. The program aims to get higher polluting vehicles off the road and is offering discounts on transit passes, bicycles, car sharing memberships, new or used cars, or even $300 cash to people willing to recycle their old cars.
I was happy to see the Bicycle Forest Pickup Truck Bike used to promote the cause. You can learn more about Retire Your Ride at: www.retireyourride.ca
