I think it is going to be like an "accident black spot", say five or six major accidents, and then you get the title, then some changes are put in place, to late for those affected,....... so what equals an accident, on a bigger scale, Tsunami, global warming, CO2 emmisions, fossil fuels etc........ these warnings still not being acted on, so whats it going to take.

This has in recent years become one of my pet hates, not so long ago we talked about smoke from fires, affecting breathing, this is another culprit, idling vehicles, and just to kick you when your down, one of the worst places is outside CYD surgery, taxi's and cars idling for ages, perfect when you exit with your inhalers,........ and in the article busses, never seem to switch off, is there a reason ?

Drivers could be banned from leaving their vehicles idling.
It's part of a bid to tackle the Welsh 'toxic air crisis'

Council vehicles need to be banned from letting their engines idle.
Vehicles on council businesses like buses as being a place to start fighting pollution.
action and enforce a ban on drivers being allowed to run their engines without moving.

“Councils have a duty to lead by example and put into practice the principles and guidelines that have been set out to tackle harmful levels of air pollution that continue to plague communities across Wales.”

“We cannot expect the public to adopt a more ‘clean air friendly’ attitude if council service providers are not doing the same, regardless of what vehicle they’re using.”           You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login

It's a pet hate of mine, too, Steve. The buses and coaches are the worst; sitting there, pumping out toxic fumes without reason or thought.
