Even after the government ordered that the roads be cleared, it took the workers hours to haul them all away by hand. For the first few days after that, most people sat around, hoping they’d all start again, but it soon became clear no such miracle was coming.

By the next week, they were all running and walking, thousands of pedestrians filled the empty roads, running through air cleaner than they’d ever smelt before.

This is for Three Line Tales. Thanks to Sonya for running the challenge and Martins Zemlickis for providing the prompt photo!

    Sometimes I think it would be nice not to see, hear or smell any cars. But I guess that would be impractical. It’s a nice daydream though.
