Air Pollution Update - June 2019

Schools Street has been an on going campaign as part of the air pollution campaign. Trials are happening at two schools.

Some schools in Sheffield have “no idling” signs outside but no enforcement, only saying that you might get a fine. Dexter shared that the regulations are that you would only get a fine if you were asked to stop and you didn’t.

June mentioned an air pollution documentary to help illustate the issues and how closing roads has helped and reduced air pollution by 60%.  – June to share the details.

PM- Particulate matter from tyres was discussed as one of the main contributors to air pollution.
