Ban cars from roads near schools to stop kids breathing toxic air& reduce road danger
Sadiq Khan, mayor of London has said cars should be banned from roads near schools in order to reduce air pollution.
It comes after a recent study found that tens of thousands of children in London’s schools are exposed to illegal levels of air pollution that can damage their health permanently.
“Why can’t we work with schools and councils to have some roads outside schools where cars aren’t allowed to go? Really encourage mums, dads, carers and children to walk to school. It will be safer and you are not breathing in toxic air when playing in the playground.”
