This is Wellington's way of having some fun with International Car-free Day.

4:06 Michael Deaker and Lisa Scott are on The Panel today - Still one more to go, but we will start to talk about what it'll mean for Auckland and New Zealand, having the Americas Cup again. Public service salaries go up and up at the top, the alien life found in the upper atmosphere, the warm embrace of the new Pope but will he change anything, and the age at which you let yourself go, you stop trying to look fantastic you embrace - warmly or not - the realities of age. This age is different for women and men.
