Initiative


To run an anti idling campaign. York for example has launched the 'kick the habit' campaign, in Bath the Living Streets campaign (run by volunteers) has received council funding to talk to drivers and encourage use of 'I'm no idler' stickers in car windows.


Rationale

Air pollution is a real problem and given the levels of traffic and idling vehicles a campaign could help reduce levels of air pollution, especially in well known congested areas

Smart traffic lights

collective rating: 
| implemented: 
How about more smart traffic lights that change according to the presence of a vehicle? That would remove the need for idling in some cases. Personally, I turned my engine off in a queue of traffic and it failed to start again so I am relucant to do this.
