LIB Dem councillors are leaving their cars at home on Monday – with one exception.
The 19-strong group are using public transport to highlight how much carbon dioxide can be saved.
But Clr Nicola Turner, who lives in Scapegoat Hill, is unable to take part.
The Colne Valley Lib Dem said: “I need to drop my children off at school in Salendine Nook and then go to my business at Sowerby Bridge.
“To do this by public transport would involve leaving the house around 6am to catch a bus, then a train, followed by two more buses.
“I was disappointed not to be able to take part, but I’m in the same boat as a lot of working parents who have to choose the car because it is the only realistic way of getting to where you need to go each day.”
However, the rest of the Lib Dem group will be taking part. The party estimates the car free day will save between 20 and 30kg of carbon dioxide.
Clr David Woodhead will save 4kg by taking the bus from Meltham to attend meetings in Huddersfield.
