New evidence that car fumes cause lung cancer and heart failure…

… but even a small reduction in air pollution will save thousands of lives every year.

MEANWHILE, new research from CarPlus (which supports car clubs and car-share schemes) shows that:

  • car club members take fewer journeys by car (and use healthier travel options instead)
  • car club cars tend to be in emissions Band A (lowest), whilst the nation’s fleet is on average in Band D.

So, join a car club, rethink your car use and drive with a Green conscience!


Bristol car-free Sundays have started!

People could walk safely in designated streets in Bristol city centre yesterday in the first of a series of monthly car-free Sundays.

Mayor George Ferguson said: “This is all about the people, cities are made up of people, not buildings and cars, and this is a wonderful demonstration and wherever I go I have been stopped by people being enthusiastic about it.

“If it has worked like this in this weather, it is going to be absolutely tremendous in finer weather.”

Could we do this in Brum? Of course! We manage OK during the half-marathon…
