Here
it is: the car that can save animals’ lives:

New Yorkers for Clean, Livable, and
Safe Streets (NYCLASS)
,
a group that has been working with PETA to free
the horses who are forced to pull carriages on New York City’s streets,
commissioned a car designer to build a replica of a classic car that tourists
could ride in instead. The result is a charming Gatsby-era “horseless carriage”
inspired by the 1909
Pierce-Arrow and Packard. Designer Jason Wenig wanted people to feel
transported, so his model includes romantic features, such as a stereo system,
that aren’t available in horse-drawn
carriages
. The re-envisioned
classic car is also eco-friendly.

NYCLASS,
PETA, and the New York City Council members who agree that too many horses have already
died
on New York’s streets
are pushing the city to allow one of the cars to begin offering tours on a
trial basis. Israel
recently paved the way by banning
“any vehicle drawn by an animal” from
operating on urban roads—the dangerous,
congested streets of New York City are no place for horse-drawn vehicles,
either.

Please
urge the entire City Council to support the use of these lifesaving cars.
