IDLING ENGINES KILL CYCLISTS AND PEDESTRIAN

                                              
  • An idling engine can produce up to twice as many exhaust emissions as an engine in motion. 
  • Exhaust emissions contain a range of air pollutants such as carbon monoxide, nitrogen dioxide, and particulate matter. 
  • These can affect the air quality of the surrounding environment and the air we breathe.
The Council has a duty of care to residents whether they be cyclists and pedestrians-old and young.
A blocked up Kensington High Street is a danger to human life not just because emergency vehicles become marooned but because of air toxicity. 
We know from Wandsworth Council that dangerous pollution soared when the cycle lanes caused congestion leading to idling engines. 
Dangerous pollution dropped dramatically when cycle lanes were removed.
We should all be writing to Cllr Thalassites thanking the Council for removing a source of cancer and bronchial diseases.

Please write to Cllr.Johnny.Thalassites@rbkc.gov.uk supporting this life-saving measure.

  1. I have no doubt that RBKC can tell us exactly the impact the congestion has had on toxicity. The Dame is right to point out that idling engines kill

  2. Cyclists and runners breathe in huge quantities of toxic air when exercising hard-far more than the pedestrian. They are the ones that should be fighting to drop this life and health threatening experiment
