We urge the Brighton & Hove City Council to enforce the existing anti-idling vehicle policy (section of 3.8.8 of the Brighton & Hove City Council Air Quality Action Plan) to reduce the pollution caused by stationary cars sat with their engines running.
Why is this important?
Idling cars are a major contributor to air pollution in our city. Hotspots in the city such as Queens Road, Western Road and Rottingdean High Street regularly exceed both UK and EU limits for nitrogen dioxide (NO2).
NO2 is a toxic gas that causes health problems such as asthma, bronchitis and lung cancer and contributes to 6% of all annual deaths in Brighton & Hove.
If this petition reaches 1250 signatures the issue will be debated by the full Brighton & Hove City Council. Please sign this petition for cleaner air in our city.
