CAReless Pollution

posted 16 Oct 2020, 06:28 by Website Admin
CAReless Pollution is a new Colchester-wide campaign encouraging drivers to switch off their engines while they wait at traffic lights, level crossings or outside schools to reduce air pollution. Scientific research shows that air pollution inside a car with the engine running is up to seven times higher than the air pollution outside the car. There is strong evidence that links air pollution to heart disease, stroke, respiratory disease and lung cancer. Switching off your car engine is a simple action that brings health benefits to everyone inside the car.
