Well, this is one car not on the roads today, or ever again.
Many cities around the world hold events on September 22 to mark "International Car Free Day", closing off some streets to cars and turning them into more people- and pedestrian-friendly areas... for a while, at least. The idea is to encourage people to leave the car at home, and instead to walk, bike or take public transit. Like other similar events ("Earth Minute", "Buy Nothing Day", etc.), the effect is more symbolic than substantial. It really is about raising awareness.

Montreal marks Car Free Day (CBC News). They and quite a few other cities closed off a substantial part of downtown to cars, while Toronto, in a very small gesture, closed only one block of one street (Yonge Street near Dundas Square).
