San Diegans Agree to Give Up Cars for One Month.

Car-sharing company Flexcar recently announced that more than 12 San Diego residents participating in the first-ever "San Diego Low-Car Diet" dropped their car keys into a lockbox on February 1 and pledged to use Flexcar and other modes of transportation to get around town for the month.

According to the company, Low-Car Diet participants will be given 25 hours of free Flexcar use during the month, as well as a transit pass and such "goodies" as two roundtrip Amtrak tickets to Los Angeles and free passes to Universal Studios. Those successfully completing the month without driving their own car will be awarded free hours of Flexcar use each month for a year.

Flexcar is co-sponsoring the Low-Car Diet with Metropolitan Transit System, Amtrak, Air Pollution Control District, the American Lung Association and Universal Studios.
