Karate athletes push a child seated in a stroller as they run during Car Free Day in Jakarta on Sunday. Since May, Jakarta has increased the frequency of car-free days from twice a month to every Sunday in a bid to bring down the level of carbon emissions in the heavily polluted metropolis, Governor Fauzi Bowo said last month, local media reported. On Sunday, all motorized vehicles will be barred from entering two of the capital's busiest streets, Jalan Sudirman and Jalan Thamrin, from 6 a.m. to 11 a.m. on car-free days.
