Jenny Bates, Friends of the Earth air pollution campaigner has responded to a survey by the RAC which found that two-thirds of drivers want tougher action on vehicle pollution where air quality is poorest.
“Motorists are right to demand action on dirty air, as people in vehicles can actually be exposed to more air pollution than those walking or cycling the same street.
“Many drivers will also be parents or grandparents and will want to protect vulnerable young lungs which can be affected for life from breathing bad air.
The government must stop dragging its heels and make sure Clean Air Zones are introduced
“With even motorists wanting the dirtiest vehicles kept out of the most polluting places, the government must stop dragging its heels and make sure Clean Air Zones are introduced across all our cities and major towns, along with a diesel scrappage scheme to help motorists move to clean vehicles and to alternatives to driving.”
