'Drive Less Challenge' begins April 22

A friendly competition sponsored by a Menlo Park group, encouraging people to spend less time in their cars, will run from Thursday, April 22, to May 5.

Sponsored by the Green Ribbon Citizens' Committee, the contest is in its second year. Mountain View, Palo Alto and Burlingame have joined the roll of sponsoring cities, according to the group's Web site.

After compiling a voluminous list of methods for reducing greenhouse gas emissions in Menlo Park in 2007, the annual "challenge" is now the group's main focus. The goal is to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, and to encourage people to reduce their "carbon footprint."
