Cars should be banned with soda,ciggies, ice cream, chips, cakes, beers, liquers,hell all food should be taken off the shelfs of stores. There should only be water, rice cakes, soy patties, gee that would mean no more lingering in bars,cafes. Then we should all wear red shirts, white pants. And wave to each Othefjr on our bikes
